Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Wha!! Ubuntus package manager is dpkg and apt-get: pacman is the Arch package manager, and Makepkg is a Slackware tool.
I hate to answer a question with a question, but i think you may be attempting to do something, and taking the wrong road. Mind telling us what your trying to accomplish by installing pacman and makepkg?
What are you still stuffing around with making the package for. You aren't running Slackware, so you don't need to use the slackbuild. You need the .deb files which are automatically installed when you follow the instructions we've given you above.
Hey bdaulsa, i'm getting the impression i've offended you. Please don't be, i try to write my posts straight to the point so i don't fill them up with irrelevant details. This approach can some times come off as aggressive, but i assure you, it's not of any sought, i'm just trying to help. Sorry if you took offense.
