installdeb-hunspell - debhelper-like utility for maintainers of Debian packages


installdeb-hunspell [debhelper options]


installdeb-hunspell is a debhelper like program that is responsible for installing
appropriate debhelper snippets in a package, according to the Debian Spell Dictionaries
and Tools Policy.

For more details, see

The actions executed by installdeb-hunspell are the following:

· Maintainer Scripts

installdeb-hunspell installs the necessary scraps of code in the postinst and postrm

· Language info file

installdeb-hunspell also checks a file containing
information, called debian/info-hunspell or debian/package.info-hunspell. If this
file is successfully parsed, it is installed in the
/var/lib/dictionaries-common/hunspell directory.

· Substvars substitutions

This script will populate a substvars file, so Depends line in control file can
contain ${hunspell:Depends} to automatically care for dictionaries-common

This requires "Build-Depends" on at least dictionaries-common-dev 1.23.0 and is highly

· Debconf files

As opposed to installdeb-ispell and installdeb-wordlist, neither installdeb-aspell nor
installdeb-hunspell do anything related to debconf files, since both aspell and
hunspell rely on the environment variable "LANG" for default dictionary selection
instead of using symlinks set after a debconf question on dictionary installation. For
that reason if you need to add debconf stuff with debhelper to your aspell or hunspell
dictionary package do it in the usual way and call dh_installdebconf(1) as for any
other package.


The usual dephelper(1) options are accepted.


This program is not part of debhelper, although it is intended to be used in hunspell
dictionary packages using debhelper in its building.
