Oh, ok, yeah I read a bit on the man page and o a webpage, but it's too
large, it has so many functions. Eitherway, I understand what you said now.
Then, on my PKGBUILD, I should modify the package()... in the next way?:

package() {
cd "${srcdir}"

tar xf data.tar.gz
mkdir -p "${pkgdir}/usr/"
cp -r "${srcdir}/./usr/local/bin" "${pkgdir}/usr/bin"
cp -r "${srcdir}/./usr/share" "${pkgdir}/usr/share"

sed -e '325s#then#then\n\t[ ! -d ~/.LMD ] \&\& lmd -reconf#' -i

chmod +x "${pkgdir}/usr/bin"/*
sed 's|usr/local|usr|' -i "${pkgdir}/usr/bin"/*
sed 's|usr/local|usr|' -i "${pkgdir}/usr/share/applications/LMD.desktop"
sed 's|usr/local|usr|' -i
sed 's|usr/local|usr|' -i "${pkgdir}/usr/share/icons/pen.png"
sed 's|usr/local|usr|' -i "${pkgdir}/usr/share/lmd/langs/ca_ES"
sed 's|usr/local|usr|' -i "${pkgdir}/usr/share/lmd/langs/es_ES"
