       dh_installwm - register a window manager


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


       dh_installwm is a debhelper program that is responsible for generating
       the postinst and postrm 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), if it is found in
       usr/share/man/man1/ in the package build directory.

       Any window manager programs specified as parameters will be registered
       in the first package dh_installwm is told to act on. By default, this
       is the first binary package in debian/control, but if you use -p, -i,
       or -a flags, it will be the first package specified by those flags.

       Files named debian/package.wm can list other window manager programs to


           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, --noscripts
           Do not modify postinst/postrm scripts. Turns this command into a

       wm ...
           The commands used to run the window manager or window managers you
           want to register.


       Note that this command is not idempotent. "dh_clean -k" should be
       called between invocations of this command. Otherwise, it may cause
       multiple instances of the same text to be added to maintainer scripts.



       This program is a part of debhelper.
