NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       dh_installdebconf - install files used by debconf in package build

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       dh_installdebconf [debhelper options] [-n] [-- params]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       dh_installdebconf is a debhelper program that is responsible for
       installing files used by the debconf package into package build directories.

       It also automatically generates the postrm commands needed to interface
       with debconf. See dh_installdeb(1) for an explanation of how that

       Files named debian/package.config and debian/package.templates are
       installed into the DEBIAN directory in the package build directory.

       Note that if you use debconf, your package probably needs to depend on
       it (it will be added to ${misc:Depends by this program).


       Debconf also supports localized template files, and this program has
       some support to aid working with them. You may find it easiest to keep
       the translations in separate files, and merge them only at build time.
       See debconf-mergetemplate(1) and debconf-getlang(1) for details.

       This program will automatically call debconf-mergetemplate and merge
       templates on the fly if it finds your template files are accompanied by
       translated files that have the same name as the template file, with a
       dot and a locale name repended.

       For example, if you have a German translation, debian/package.templates.de
 is merged with debian/package.templates.

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]
