Anyone knows what must be removed or added(If anything) from the git download in order to upload Enigma-LGM to launchpad and create a PPA repository?

Not really sure, but someone did it once before I believe, there's been interest for sometime in a package.

I think it was Leonardo da Vinci who once said something along the lines of "If you build the robots, they will make games." or something to that effect.

Yea I found it on the forum somewhere, the links are dead and a PPA is a much better option:

You clone the main repository to launchpad-bazaar
Then you let launchpad build the packages (following a recipe you have to write) for the ubuntu versions you want
Afterward whenever the main repository is updated so are the packages in the PPA

Already created the PPA but it failed in the building, the recipe wasn't right I'm sure, and it's a little to complicated for me.

There is our Arch Linux package linked on the download page, but we don't maintain it. The author was here, you could try contacting him.

It appears his name was "lapingvino"

Arch PKGBUILDs can't be converted directly to DEBs, unfortunately. However, you can use the PKGBUILD as a guide when creating your debian control file. PKGBUILD is basically a *very* slimmed-down build script, so it's pretty easy to understand just by reading it:
