Description Ray Strode [halfline] 2010-05-26 18:35:22 UTC
The desktop file for thunderbird lacks a tryexec line.  This means if the desktop file is copied to a system that lacks thunderbird installed (say in the users ~/.local or ~/.gnome2/panel.d) you'll get a broken icon instead of a nice, dynamically hidden icon.
