desktop-file-utils
==================

http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/desktop-file-utils

desktop-file-utils contains a few command line utilities for working
with desktop entries.

desktop-file-validate: validates a desktop file and prints warnings/errors
                       about desktop entry specification violations.

desktop-file-install: installs a desktop file to the applications directory,
                      optionally munging it a bit in transit.

update-desktop-database: updates the database containing a cache of
                         MIME types handled by desktop files.
