DH_INSTALLWM(1) Debhelper DH_INSTALLWM(1)

NAME

dh_installwm - register a window manager

SYNOPSIS

dh_installwm [debhelper options] [-n] [--priority= n] [wm ...]

DESCRIPTION

dh_installwm is a debhelper program that is responsible for generating the postinst and prerm commands that register a window manager with update-alternatives(8). The window manager's man page is also registered as a slave symlink (in v6 mode and up). It must be installed in usr/share/man/man1/ in the package build directory prior to calling dh_installwm. In compat 9 and earlier, the manpage was optional.

FILES

debian/package.wm
List window manager programs to register.

OPTIONS

--priority=n
Set the priority of the window manager. Default is 20, which is too low for most window managers; see the Debian Policy document for instructions on calculating the correct value.
-n, --no-scripts
Do not modify postinst/prerm scripts. Turns this command into a no-op.
wm ...
Window manager programs to register.

NOTES

Note that this command is not idempotent. dh_prep(1) should be called between invocations of this command. Otherwise, it may cause multiple instances of the same text to be added to maintainer scripts.

SEE ALSO

This program is a part of debhelper.
