Does manually running 

update-desktop-database /usr/share/applications 

make any difference ?
Comment 3 Igor Pires Soares 2008-08-31 17:17:30 EDT
No, it don't. But I think I figure out where the problem is.

I have removed the "TryExec" directive at the end of the .desktop files and it worked well. In broffice.org-*.desktop files the "TryExec" points to OpenOffice.org executable filenames. Maybe that's why the whole thing happens. I also noticed that these .desktop files have different permissions from other ones. Most files are rw-r--r-- but these ones are read-only.
Comment 4 Caolan McNamara 2008-09-01 03:18:21 EDT
Indeed, the TryExec is on the wrong set of .desktops, though it didn't make a serious difference here. Fix checked in, will be in >= 3.0.0-4.2

No TryExec in broffice.org-* now
