NAME

       install-xpi - installs a xpi file into a Debian package

SYNOPSIS

       install-xpi [options] xpi-file

DESCRIPTION

       install-xpi  is a helper tool for packaging XUL extensions. It installs the given xpi file
       into the correct directory and creates the  required  links  based  on  the  data  in  the
       install.rdf  file.   It  corrects  the  file  permissions unless --preserve-permissions is
       specified.

       install-xpi will create a configuration file in /etc if the XUL extension provides one  or
       more  preferences  files  in  defaults/preferences. The configuration file contains only a
       description where to find the  overridable  preferences.   debian/package.js  is  used  as
       configuration  file  instead if it exists. The placeholder @INSTALLDIR@ is replaces by the
       actual installation directory. You can disable the creation of a system configuration file
       with --disable-system-prefs.

OPTIONS

       --disable-system-prefs
              Do not create a system preference file in /etc.

       -x file, --exclude=file
              The  specified  file  from  the  xpi  file  will not be installed. You can use this
              parameter several times.

       -h, --help
              Display a brief help message.

       -i directory, --install-dir=directory
              The xpi file will be installed in the specified directory.  directory  must  be  an
              absolute path. Use this parameter with care.

       -l directory, --link=directory
              An  additional  link  from  the  directory  to  the  installation  directory of the
              extension will be created. You can use this parameter several times.

       -p package, --package=package
              The xpi file will be installed in the specified binary package. If  this  parameter
              is not provided, the first binary package listed in debian/control will be used.

       --preserve-permissions
              The  permissions  of  the  files  in  the  xpi  file  will not be modified. If this
              parameter is not provided, install-xpi will try to correct the permissions  of  the
              files to 644 (files that starts with a shebang will be corrected to 755).

       -r, --remove-license-files
              Files with names like copying, licence, or license will not be installed.

       -v, --verbose
