DH_FIXPERMS(1)                     Debhelper                    DH_FIXPERMS(1)

NAME
       dh_fixperms - fix permissions of files in package build directories

SYNOPSIS
       dh_fixperms [debhelperoptions] [-Xitem]

DESCRIPTION
       dh_fixperms is a debhelper program that is responsible for setting the
       permissions of files and directories in package build directories to a
       sane state -- a state that complies with Debian policy.

       dh_fixperms makes all files in usr/share/doc in the package build
       directory (excluding files in the examples/ directory) be mode 644. It
       also changes the permissions of all man pages to mode 644. It removes
       group and other write permission from all files. It removes execute
       permissions from any libraries, headers, Perl modules, or desktop files
       that have it set. It makes all files in the standard bin and sbin
       directories, usr/games/ and etc/init.d executable (since v4). Finally,
       it removes the setuid and setgid bits from all files in the package.

       When the Rules-Requires-Root field has the (effective) value of binary-
       targets, dh_fixperms will also reset the ownership of all paths to
       "root:root".

OPTIONS
       -Xitem, --exclude item
           Exclude files that contain item anywhere in their filename from
           having their permissions changed. You may use this option multiple
           times to build up a list of things to exclude.
