desktop-file-utils - Command line utilities for working with desktop entries

.desktop files are used to describe an application for inclusion in GNOME or KDE menus. This package contains desktop-file-validate which checks whether a .desktop file complies with the specification at http://www.freedesktop.org/standards/, and desktop-file-install which installs a desktop file to the standard directory, optionally fixing it up in the process.
