Visibility: info

This .desktop file does not contain an Icon entry.

The Icon field should contain the name of the icon file, without the extension, that is displayed. The different icon themes are searched to locate it. For absolute paths, the name given will be used. The icon should be sufficiently unique so that the user can recognize the application.

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