dh_fixperms - fix permissions of files in package build directories
dh_fixperms [debhelper options] [-Xitem]
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 makes all files be owned by root, and 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 bin/ directories, /usr/games/ and etc/init.d executable (since v4). Finally, it removes the setuid and setgid bits from all files in the package.
This program is a part of debhelper.
