DH_INSTALLTMPFILES(1)           Debhelper          DH_INSTALLTMPFILES(1)

NAME         top

       dh_installtmpfiles - install tmpfiles.d configuration files

SYNOPSIS         top

       dh_installtmpfiles [debhelper options][--name=name]

DESCRIPTION         top

       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).

OPTIONS         top

           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.

FILES         top

           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.

           Deprecated name for debian/package.tmpfiles.

NOTES         top

       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.
