NAME
       dh_installxfonts - register X fonts

SYNOPSIS
       dh_installxfonts [debhelperoptions]

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

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