DH_INSTALLWM(1)                 Debhelper                DH_INSTALLWM(1)

NAME         top

       dh_installwm - register a window manager

SYNOPSIS         top

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

DESCRIPTION         top

       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         top

           List window manager programs to register.

           Supports substitution variables in compat 13 and later as
           documented in debhelper(7).

OPTIONS         top

           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         top

       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.
