desktop-mime-but-no-exec-code

The named desktop entry indicates support for at least one MIME type, but does not provide a code like %f, %F, %u or %U in the Exec key.

If the application can in fact handle files of the given MIME types, the menu item should somehow pass those filenames as parameters to the executable.

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.114.163. That is the most recent version we know about.

We use semantic versions. The patch number is a commit step indicator relative to the 2.114.0 release tag in our Git repository.

You can find the detection logic for this version at commit 3410a22. For merge requests, please use the latest version in the Lintian check menu-format.
