dh_icons — Update caches of Freedesktop icons


dh_icons [debhelper options] [-n]


dh_icons is a debhelper program that updates caches of Freedesktop icons when needed, using the update-icon-caches program provided by GTK+2.12. Currently this program does not handle installation of the files, though it may do so at a later date, so should be run after icons are installed in the package build directories.

It takes care of adding maintainer script fragments to call update-icon-caches for icon directories. (This is not done for gnome and hicolor icons, as those are handled by triggers.) These commands are inserted into the maintainer scripts by dh_installdeb(1).


-n, --no-scripts

Do not modify maintainer scripts.
