Remove deprecated bits from virtualbox.desktop

Reported by: PeladoFeo Owned by:

Cc: Guest type: Linux
Host type: other


virtualbox.desktop (/usr/share/applications/virtualbox.desktop) ships with the following categories:


The category "Application" does not exist and should be dropped. The category "X-MandrivaLinux-System" can safely be dropped as it's overridden by "System".


Additionally, the desktop file ships with a "DocPath" key:

DocPath= file:///usr/share/doc/virtualbox/UserManual.pdf

This key does not exist and has no effect. It should either be dropped, or be replaced by an "extension" key, such as X-Gnome-DocPath (which is the only one that exists that I could find).

I would send a patch but I can't get svn sorted out. This is an easy change, so anyone else please pick it up. Thank you.
