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.
-A, --all
Modify scripts for window managers specified by command line parameters in ALL packages acted on, not just the first.
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.
