Hi Emanoil,
as Mike said, that is the way you build package starting from source in Debian/Ubuntu. I build them the same way.
It building tdepim fails, there are two possibilities:
1) you are missing some dependency packages. This is most likely not highlighted when invoking cmake directly from CLI.
If you use dpkg-buildpackage or pbuilder, they will check dependencies as well in the process and inform you if a
required package is missing.
2) you are using Debian/Stretch and a recent change in a package cause a FTBFS, in which case we will need to prepare a
fix for.

Most likely you are in case 1), although occasionally I run into 2) here and there (I use Debian/Stretch).
