    I’m running 64-bit Debian, and I was really hoping the above was my solution. I was able to do everything except compress the result back to an .ar. Neither my file managers nor Ark had that as an option, even though Ark was able to unpack the .ar. I have ar installed on my system, but the command line options were too confusing for me to figure out how to use it.

    I finally was able to google someone who provided the ar command:
    ar -r dropbox.deb debian-binary control.tar.gz data.tar.gz
