There was some incompatibilites with fish, as shown under here ( with a user named zakaria for instance) .

The trouble appears with some variables expansion.

Here is a workable fix 

I've managed to fix them (basically adding a sh -s /bin/bash at each shell call command in postinst deb package script. Please find here a diff between the orginal deb package(orpack) and the repacked one (repack2).

If users which to use the original deb repacked, please find it attached here (from the version 6.0.1-6) in a zip container. 

Feel free to add any useful info I've might have missed or done wrong.
