virtualbox.desktop broken => Fixed in SVN

Description

The desktop file is broken since 5.0, if my memory is correct. Running desktop-file-validate on it gives 2 errors and 2 warnings:

/usr/share/applications/virtualbox.desktop: warning: key "Encoding" in group "Desktop Entry" is deprecated
/usr/share/applications/virtualbox.desktop: error: value "virtualization" for locale string list key "Keywords" in group "Desktop Entry" does not have a semicolon (';') as trailing character
/usr/share/applications/virtualbox.desktop: error: value "Virtualisierung" for locale string list key "Keywords[de]" in group "Desktop Entry" does not have a semicolon (';') as trailing character
/usr/share/applications/virtualbox.desktop: warning: value "Emulator;System;X-MandrivaLinux-System;Application;" for key "Categories" in group "Desktop Entry" contains a deprecated value "Application"
  • The errors are solved by adding a semicolon at the end of the lines mentioned (10 and 11).
  • The first warning is solved by removing l.2 (although keeping it might be needed for compatibility reasons, I'm not sure on this).
  • The second waning is solved by removing 'Application;' in l.15.

The errors are a rather serious issue, as they might prevent update-desktop-database from creating a menu entry.

  • Summary changed from virtualbox.desktop broken to virtualbox.desktop broken => Fixed in SVN

Thanks for the report. I wouldn't denote the file as broken but fixing these small complaints makes sense. The fix will be part of the next 5.0.x maintenance release.

Thanks for the very quick reaction and fix. I called it broken merely because it is not parseable by update-desktop-database as it is, which is basically the only point of a desktop file.

Fix is part of VBox 5.0.12.
