Wdesktop-mime-but-no-exec-code

Tag versions

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.108.13. That is the most recent version we know about.

The desktop entry lists support for at least one mime type, but does not provide codes like %f, %F, %u or %U for the Exec key.

If the application can indeed handle files of the listed mime types, it should specify a way to pass the filenames as parameters.
