Thanks. In the meantime I commited the .desktop file as a documentation
example (so you don't have to wget it) and give instructions how to
(un-)install it. Since I assume the same security considerations as for
binfmt support apply, we won't automatically enable this (in Debian).
Looks like this gives application icons/launchers for browsedrive (never heard,
but the name is clear), wine-notepad, wine-uninstaller and wine-winecfg do. I'm
not really interested in adding these.
I'm not exactly sure what these do, screenshots might help me to understand
them. But looks like they are creating (sub-)sections to group apllication
In my Debian Gnome system I think I don't even have these (sub-)sections for
launchers. So is this really useful today, or a relict from the past? I assume
this is for a completely other GUI philosophy, than what current Desktop
Environments (at least Gnome, I don't know Unity) do, and thus not really
See e.g. https://wiki.debian.org/MimeTypesSupport. I assume all functionality
is given by the .desktop file today.
If I'm not mistaken those aren't needed anymore, the menu system has been
superseded by the .desktop system. The functionality should still be there.
So from my perspective I think everything is done. Please give specific
descriptions/examples if I missed something.
