Package: earcandy
Version: 0.5-1.1

A desktop file with a space before Encoding= causes earcandy to fail to start
ConfigParser.ParsingError: File contains parsing errors:
        [line  2]: ' Encoding=UTF-8\n'

the file looks like this
[Desktop Entry]
Name=Compiz Settings Manager
Comment=Configure Compiz

deleting the space before the key word Encoding allows earcandy to start.

I'm closing this as no longer reproducible.
