Idesktop-entry-lacks-keywords-entry

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.104.244. That is the most recent version we know about.

This .desktop file does either not contain a "Keywords" entry or it does not contain any keywords not already present in the "Name" or "GenericName" entries.

.desktop files are organized in key/value pairs (similar to .ini files). "Keywords" is the name of the entry/key in the .desktop file containing keywords relevant for this .desktop file.

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

Refer to https://specifications.freedesktop.org/desktop-entry-spec/latest/ar01s06.html, Bug#693918, and https://wiki.gnome.org/Initiatives/GnomeGoals/DesktopFileKeywords for details.
