Description (last modified by frank) (diff)

the desktop file used for the menus and desktop icons in Gnome is deprecated and contains .png in the Icon field. That cause the icon to be absent from the desktop when VirtualBox launcher in put on the desktop in Linux Ubuntu Hardy alpha.

Warnings from desktop-file-validate :

VirtualBox.desktop: warning: key "Encoding" in group "Desktop Entry" is deprecated
VirtualBox.desktop: warning: key "DocPath" in group "Desktop Entry" is a reserved key for KDE
VirtualBox.desktop: warning: value "" for key "Path" in group "Desktop Entry" does not look like an absolute path
VirtualBox.desktop: error: value "VBox.png" for key "Icon" in group "Desktop Entry" is an icon name with an extension, but there should be no extension as described in the Icon Theme Specification if the value is not an absolute path
VirtualBox.desktop: warning: value "Application;Emulator;System;X-MandrivaLinux-System;" for key "Categories" in group "Desktop Entry" contains a deprecated value "Application"

I attached a diff which fixes this issue.
