NAME

       desktop-file-validate - Validate desktop entry files

SYNOPSIS

       desktop-file-validate [--no-hints] [--no-warn-deprecated] [--warn-kde] FILE...

DESCRIPTION

       The  desktop-file-validate  program is a tool to validate desktop entry files according to
       the Desktop Entry specification 1.1.

       The specification describes a file format to provide information such as  name,  icon  and
       description  for  an  application. Such a file can then be used as an application launcher
       and to display the application in the applications menu.

       For     information     about     the      Desktop      Entry      specification,      see
       http://freedesktop.org/wiki/Specifications/desktop-entry-spec.

       The desktop entry files are commonly called desktop files.

OPTIONS

       The following options are supported:

       --no-hints
              Do not output hints about things that might be improved in the desktop file.

       --no-warn-deprecated
              Do  not warn about usage of deprecated items that were defined in previous versions
              of the specification.

       --warn-kde
              Warn about usage of KDE extensions to the specification. This includes the  use  of
              the   KDE   Desktop   Entry   group,   of   the  ServiceTypes,  DocPath,  Keywords,
              InitialPreference, Dev, FSType, MountPoint, ReadOnly, UnmountIcon keys, or  of  the
              Service, ServiceType and FSDevice types.
