One way: you can create a "install" file in debian directory,
that contain some similar to:

package/pixmaps/graph.xpm usr/share/pixmaps/
I use cdbs....

Look at the dh_install manpage and see how to create a file in
debian/ that tells dh_install where to put the file. Take a look at
the source code of any package that uses CDBS and has a desktop
file. gpe-expenses is one.

Don't get it yet.


what do you mean with the $?
Didn't you check the gpe-expenses source code as I suggested?
Yes, but it handles total different things, I could figure out how it works using that example.

$ cat /opt/working/gpe-expenses/debian/gpe-expenses.install debian/tmp/usr/bin/gpe-expenses usr/bin/
debian/tmp/usr/share/man/* usr/share/man/
debian/tmp/usr/share/pixmaps/gpe-expenses.xpm usr/share/pixmaps/
debian/tmp/usr/share/applications/* usr/share/applications/
Don't get it. What is that tmp thing and should I also do something with it?

But how and where do I run the dh_install command with cdbs?

With a debian/$package.install file, CDBS runs dh_install for that
package automatically.
