       dh_installtex - register Type 1 fonts, hyphenation patterns, or formats with TeX


       dh_installtex [debhelper options] [-n] [--priority=n] [--flavor=flavor[,flavor]]
       [map=MixedMap,] [map=Map,] [mapfile=file.cfg[=n]]
       [hyphen=lang,file[,lhm=n][,rhm=n][,synonym=syn,...]]  [hyphenfile=file.cnf[=n]]
       [format=format,engine,hyphenfile,rest args] [formatfile=file.cnf[=n]]


       dh_installtex is a debhelper program that is responsible for updating the ls-R databases,
       registering map files, new formats, and new hyphenation patterns with TeX.

       Your package should depend on an appropriate version of tex-common so that the update-*
       commands are available. (This program adds that dependency to ${misc:Depends}.)

       WARNING This program does not check for the actual existence of any input files in TEXMF
       trees. If you call it without any further specification on which packages to work on
       (using "-p" or "-N") it will add calls to management functions to all packages. In this
       case don't forget to add ${misc:Depends} to all packages' dependencies.

SIMPLE USAGE: Registering Files

       If you only install files into /usr/share/texmf and want to be sure that mktexlsr is
       called in a correct way (e.g., also in the postrm script when there is no functional
       mktexlsr), simply call


COMPLEX USAGE: Registering fonts, hyphenation patterns and formats

       If in addition, you have to install map files, hyphenation patterns for additional
       languages, or format definitions you can use three different methods to specify what
       should be installed:

       1) Pre made config files: These files can be specified with the different typefile=
       options, together with an optional priority.  type can be one of map, format and hyphen,
       and these files will be installed into /etc/texmf/configdir/ for the respective type
       (updmap.d for map files, hyphen.d for hyphenation pattern files, and fmt.d for format


               dh_installtex mapfile=foo.cfg formatfile=debian/bar.cnf=42

       would install foo.cfg as /etc/texmf/updmap.d/20foo.cfg, and debian/bar.cnf as

       2) Directly on the cmd line: You can specify maps, formats, and hyphenations on the cmd
       line. The items are stored in the respective config file 20package


               dh_installtex map=Map, hyphen=french,loadhyph-fr.tex,lhm=2,rhm=3,synonym=patois,synonym=francais

       would install a file /etc/texmf/updmap.d/20package.cfg containing the line


       and a file /etc/texmf/hyphen.d/20package.cnf containing the lines

               name=french file=loadhyphen-fr.tex lefthyphenmin=2 righthyphenmin=3 synonyms=patois,francais

       3) Package files: You create a file debian/package.maps or debian/maps,
       debian/package.hyphens or debian/hyphens, debian/package.formats or debian/formats. These
       files are installed with default priority and the name of the package. Each of these files
       will be installed into the first package dh_installtex 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.



       would install a present debian/package.maps file as /etc/texmf/updmap.d/20package.cfg.

   Mixing the different variants
       The command line items (Variant 2) are merged into the debian/package.maps
       (debian/package.hyphens, debian/package.formats) file and the merged file is installed as
       20package.cfg/cnf. If you specify an additional package.cfg/cnf (Variant 1) without a
       different priority than the default one on the cmd line, this will raise an error since
       both files would be installed as 20package.cfg/cnf. You can only specify package.cfg/cnf
       without a different priority than the default one if no debian/package.maps nor any
       command line Map files are present.

   The pseudo-comment
       If the provided cfg files do not contain the pseudo-comment as described in the Debian TeX
       Policy, Font configuration, an additional header with explanation, warning and the pseudo-
       comment is added.

       This program automatically generates the postinst and postrm commands needed to register
       the fonts with TeX.  See dh_installdeb(1) for an explanation of how this works.


       -n, --noscripts
           Do not modify postinst/prerm scripts.

           Set the default priority to n instead of 20.

           This option will be used to switch additional options on. The argument specify a list
           from flavors to be selected.  At the moment you can select from the following list of
           flavors: map:config_for_active_maps, map:config_for_all_maps, format:build_all,
           format:add_one:formatname, and lsr:full.

           map:config_for_active_maps will create a file for each active (i.e.
           uncommented) map in each of the cfg file generated by one of the three methods
           described above. These files are installed in /usr/share/texmf/dvips/config/.

           If you select map:config_for_all_maps the script will generate even for
           those map files which are present in a cfg file, but deactivated by a comment.

           The file is used when called by `dvips -Pbar ...'. Thus it allows the
           activation of single map files even if they are not automatically activated via the
           updmap(-sys) mechanism.

           Default is not to generate any config files.

           format:build_all will add code to the postinst script to create all defined formats,
           and to the postrm script to clean and recreate? FIXME?  the generated formats.

           format:add_one:formatname allows to add the generation of a specific format without
           actually providing it (in a cnf file).  This is useful if a package adds hyphenation
           patterns to an existing formats.

           format:no_links: Usually, for every format that is specified in a configuration file
           in /etc/texmf/fmt.d/, dh_installtex will create a symlink /usr/bin/format that points
           to the corresponding engine.  For example, /usr/bin/latex would be created as a
           symlink to pdftex.

           The flavor format:no_links inhibits this. If a link already exists, dh_installtex will
           skip this format with an informational message, even if this option is not given.

           lsr:full: Recreate the lsr database not only for the standard trees, but also the
           distribution tree "/usr/share/texmf-texlive".


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

       Please refer to the Debian TeX policy for details about fonts configuration for TeX by
       Debian packages.
