Bug description:
  Steps to reproduce:
  1. Have Ubuntu MATE installed
  2. Open Caja, navigate to 


  3. Click on Vim

  Expected result:
  * Vim is launched

  Actual result:
  * Vim is not launched, the error window is shown with text "There was an 
error launching the application."


  the /usr/share/applications/vim.desktop refers to `vim` executable which is 
not installed.
  The /usr/share/applications/vim.desktop came from 

  $ dpkg -S /usr/share/applications/vim.desktop 
  vim-common: /usr/share/applications/vim.desktop

  $ aptitude why vim-common 
  i   vim-tiny Depends vim-common (= 2:7.4.1689-3ubuntu1.2)

  $ aptitude why vim-tiny 
  i   ubuntu-minimal Depends vim-tiny

  So it is a dependency issue. Having vim.desktop without installed `vim` 
executable is useless.
  All Ubuntu versions are affected.
