dh_installwm — register a window manager

Synopsis

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

Description

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.

List window manager programs to register.

Options

--priority=n

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.

wm ...

Window manager programs to register.

Notes

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.
