Idesktop-entry-contains-encoding-key

Tag versions

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.109.24. That is the most recent version we know about.

The Encoding key is now deprecated by the FreeDesktop standard and all strings are required to be encoded in UTF-8. This desktop entry explicitly specifies an Encoding of UTF-8, which is harmless but no longer necessary.

The desktop-file-validate tool in the desktop-file-utils package is useful for checking the syntax of desktop entries.

Please refer to https://specifications.freedesktop.org/desktop-entry-spec/latest/apc.html for details.
