Visibility: warning

This desktop entry uses a Type that is not among the currently recognized values of Application, Link or Directory.

Implementations normally ignore unknown values but this condition is probably not intended.

The values are case-sensitive.

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