desktop-entry-file-has-crs

The desktop entry file has lines ending in carriage-return and line-feed instead of just a line-feed. The Desktop Entry Specification says that lines should end with line-feed alone.

Some software may mistake the carriage-return as a part of the field value.

You can run the following command to remove any CR character in a file:

 <code>sed -i 's/\r//g' path/to/file</code>
