E global-data-in-games-directory

This package contains files under /usr/share/games, such as desktop files, icons, pixmaps, or MIME type entries, that are global system data. The user's desktop environment will only check in the directories directly under /usr/share and this information should be put in the global directory even if it is for games.

The most common cause of this problem is using a --datadir=/usr/share/games argument to configure or an equivalent and using the upstream installation rules. These files need to be moved into the corresponding directories directly under /usr/share.
