NAME         top

       dh_installxfonts - register X fonts

SYNOPSIS         top

       dh_installxfonts [debhelper options]

DESCRIPTION         top

       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 depend on xfonts-utils so that the
       update-fonts-* commands are available. (This program adds that
       dependency to ${misc:Depends}.)

       This program automatically generates the postinst and postrm
       commands needed to register X fonts. These commands are inserted
       into the maintainer scripts by dh_installdeb. See
       dh_installdeb(1) for an explanation of how this works.

NOTES         top

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

       See Debian policy, section 11.8.5. for details about doing fonts
       the Debian way.
