NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       dh_installxfonts - register X fonts

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       dh_installxfonts [debhelper options]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       dh_installxfonts is a debhelper program that is responsible for registering
 X fonts, so their corresponding fonts.dir, fonts.alias, and
       fonts.scale be rebuilt properly at install time.

       Before calling this program, you should have installed any X fonts provided
 by your package into the appropriate location in the package
       build directory, and if you have fonts.alias or fonts.scale files, you
       should install them into the correct location under etc/X11/fonts in
       your package build directory.

       Your package should should depend on xutils (>= 4.0.3) so that the
       update-fonts-* commands are available. (This program adds that dependency
 to ${misc:Depends}.)

       This programt automatically generates the postinst and postrm commands
       needed to register X fonts.  See dh_installdeb(1) for an explanation of
       how this works.

NOTES    [Toc]    [Back]

       See update-fonts-alias(8), update-fonts-scale(8), and
       update-fonts-dir(8) for more information about X font installation.

       See Debian policy, section 12.8.5. for details about doing fonts the
       Debian way.
