Quick directions on doing this...

Go here.
Download the 3 files of the package into a common directory; 

Run this command in that directory.
dpkg-source -x fbpanel_4.12-1.dsc

This unpacks the tar.gz and applies the patches.

cd into the directory and issue this command.

fakeroot ./debian/rules binary

This should produce the .deb package.

Then 'dpkg -i [package name].deb' to install.

You'll need the various dev packages and fakeroot of course.
