dh_installtmpfiles - install tmpfiles.d configuration files
dh_installtmpfiles [debhelper options][--name=name]
dh_installtmpfiles is a debhelper program that is responsible for installing package maintainer supplied tmpfiles.d configuration files (e.g. for systemd-tmpfiles). It also finds the tmpfiles.d configuration files installed by a package and generates postinst code blocks for activating the tmpfiles.d configuration when the package is installed. These snippets are added to the maintainer scripts by dh_installdeb(1).
--name=name This option controls both a prefix used for lookng up maintainer provided tmpfiles.d configuration files (those mentioned in the "FILES" section) and also the base name used for the installed version of the file.
debian/package.tmpfiles If this exists, it is installed into usr/lib/tmpfiles.d/ in the package build directory. Note that the "tmpfiles.d" mechanism is currently only used by systemd. debian/package.tmpfile Deprecated name for debian/package.tmpfiles.
This command is not idempotent. dh_prep(1) should be called between invocations of this command (with the same arguments). Otherwise, it may cause multiple instances of the same text to be added to maintainer scripts.
