Description Christoph Wickert 2012-06-04 16:46:08 EDT
Description of problem:
/usr/share/applications/remote-viewer.desktop is not a valid menu file:
1. It lacks categories so it shows up under "Other" in the menu. 
2. It does not validate (which should be done in the spec file according to our packaging guidelines):

$ desktop-file-validate /usr/share/applications/remote-viewer.desktop 
/usr/share/applications/remote-viewer.desktop: error: value "False" for boolean key "Terminal" in group "Desktop Entry" contains invalid characters, boolean values must be "false" or "true"
/usr/share/applications/remote-viewer.desktop: error: value "x-scheme-handler/spice" for string list key "MimeType" in group "Desktop Entry" does not have a semicolon (';') as trailing character

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Thanks for the patch, was just gonna forward it upstream but someone got to it just last week:

commit 0f6b286e7a539e3ad3051e3b93ab588f226dd18c

    Make .desktop file comply with spec
    The .desktop file did not comply with the Desktop Entry spec as checked
    with desktop-file-validate. Boolean keys are defined as taking only
    'true' or 'false', the entry Terminal had False. MimeType is a string
    list and therefore must be terminated with a ;

Since this is fairly minor (AIUI there isn't much functional impact), closing as UPSTREAM.

This issue is still present in F18:

# cat /usr/share/applications/remote-viewer.desktop
[Desktop Entry]
Name=Remote Viewer
Exec=remote-viewer %u

# rpm -q virt-viewer

F18 is end-of-life soon, so this bug is unlikely to be fixed there. It should already be fixed in F19 though, so closing.
