       dh_systemd_enable - enable/disable systemd unit files

       dh_systemd_enable [debhelperoptions] [--no-enable] [--name=name]

       dh_systemd_enable is a debhelper program that is responsible for
       enabling and disabling systemd unit files.

       In the simple case, it finds all unit files installed by a package
       (e.g.  bacula-fd.service) and enables them. It is not necessary that
       the machine actually runs systemd during package installation time,
       enabling happens on all machines in order to be able to switch from
       sysvinit to systemd and back.

       In the complex case, you can call dh_systemd_enable and
       dh_systemd_start manually (by overwriting the debian/rules targets) and
       specify flags per unit file. An example is colord, which ships
       colord.service, a dbus-activated service without an [Install] section.
       This service file cannot be enabled or disabled (a state called
       "static" by systemd) because it has no [Install] section. Therefore,
       running dh_systemd_enable does not make sense.

       For only generating blocks for specific service files, you need to pass
       them as arguments, e.g. dh_systemd_enable quota.service and
       dh_systemd_enable --name=quotarpc quotarpc.service.

           If this exists, it is installed into
           lib/systemd/system/package.service in the package build directory.

           If this exists, it is installed into
           usr/lib/tmpfiles.d/package.conf in the package build directory.
           (The tmpfiles.d mechanism is currently only used by systemd.)

           Disable the service(s) on purge, but do not enable them on install.

           Note that this option does not affect whether the services are
           started.  That is controlled by dh_systemd_start(1) (using e.g. its
           --no-start option).

           Install the service file as name.service instead of the default
           filename, which is the package.service. When this parameter is
           used, dh_systemd_enable looks for and installs files named
           debian/package.name.service instead of the usual

       Note that this command is not idempotent. dh_prep(1) should be called
       between invocations of this command (with the same arguments).
       Otherwise, it may cause multiple instances of the same text to be added
       to maintainer scripts.

       Note that dh_systemd_enable should be run before dh_installinit.  The
       default sequence in dh does the right thing, this note is only relevant
       when you are calling dh_systemd_enable manually.
