NAME


desktop-file-install, desktop-file-edit - Installation and edition of desktop files

SYNOPSIS

original] [--rebuild-mime-info-cache] [EDITOPTION]... FILE...

desktop-file-edit [EDITOPTION]... FILE

DESCRIPTION


The desktop-file-install program is a tool to install, and optionally edit, desktop files.
The desktop-file-edit program is a tool to edit a desktop file. They are mostly useful for
developers and packagers.

Various options are available to edit the desktop files. The edit options can be specified
more than once and will be processed in the same order as the options passed to the
program.

desktop-file-install and desktop-file-edit will always try to validate the resulting
desktop file. A failure to validate might lead to the abortion of the installation of the
desktop files.

The list of registered categories and desktop environments is defined in the Menu
specification: http://freedesktop.org/wiki/Specifications/menu-spec.

OPTIONS


The following options are supported:

--dir=DIR
Install desktop files to the DIR directory.

-m, --mode=MODE
Set the permissions of the destination files to MODE.

--vendor=VENDOR
Add a vendor prefix to the desktop files. If a file already has this prefix,
nothing happens; else, the file will be named VENDOR-FILE. For example: if VENDOR
is freedesktop.org and FILE is specification.desktop, the result file will be
freedesktop.org-specification.desktop.

--delete-original
Delete the source desktop files, leaving only the target files. Effectively
"renames" the desktop files.

--rebuild-mime-info-cache
Rebuild the MIME types application database after installing the desktop files. See
update-desktop-database(1) for information about this database.

EDIT OPTIONS


The following edit options are supported:

--set-key=KEY
Set the KEY key to the value passed to the next --set-value option. A matching
--set-value option is mandatory.

--set-value=VALUE
Set the key specified with the previous --set-key option to VALUE. A matching
--set-key option is mandatory.

--set-name=NAME
Set the name (key Name) to NAME. If a name was already set, it will be overridden.
Localizations of the old name will be removed.

--copy-name-to-generic-name
Copy the value of the Name key to the GenericName key. Note that a desktop file
requires a Name key to be valid, so this option will always have an effect.

--set-generic-name=GENERIC-NAME
Set the generic name (key GenericName) to GENERIC-NAME. If a generic name was
already set, it will be overridden. Localizations of the old generic name will be
removed.

--copy-generic-name-to-name
Copy the value of the GenericName key to the Name key, if the GenericName key is
present.

--set-comment=COMMENT
Set the comment (key Comment) to COMMENT. If a comment was already set, it will be
overridden. Localizations of the old comment will be removed.

--set-icon=ICON
Set the icon (key Icon) to ICON. If an icon was already set, it will be overridden.
Localizations of the old icon will be removed.

--add-category=CATEGORY
Add CATEGORY to the list of categories (key Categories). If CATEGORY was already
present in the list, this operation is a no-op. A non-registered category should be
prefixed with X-.

--remove-category=CATEGORY
Remove CATEGORY from the list of categories (key Categories). If CATEGORY was not
present in the list, this operation is a no-op.

--add-mime-type=MIME-TYPE
Add MIME-TYPE to the list of MIME types (key MimeType). If MIME-TYPE was already
present in the list, this operation is a no-op.

--remove-mime-type=MIME-TYPE
Remove MIME-TYPE from the list of MIME types (key MimeType). If MIME-TYPE was not
present in the list, this operation is a no-op.

--add-only-show-in=ENVIRONMENT
Add ENVIRONMENT to the list of desktop environments where the desktop files should
be displayed (key OnlyShowIn). If ENVIRONMENT was already present in the list, this
operation is a no-op. A non-registered desktop environment should be prefixed with
X-. Note that an empty OnlyShowIn key in a desktop file means that the desktop file
will be displayed in all environments.

--remove-only-show-in=ENVIRONMENT
Remove ENVIRONMENT from the list of desktop environments where the desktop files
should be displayed (key OnlyShowIn). If ENVIRONMENT was not present in the list,
this operation is a no-op.

--add-not-show-in=ENVIRONMENT
Add ENVIRONMENT to the list of desktop environments where the desktop files should
not be displayed (key NotShowIn). If ENVIRONMENT was already present in the list,
this operation is a no-op. A non-registered desktop environment should be prefixed
with X-. Note that an empty NotShowIn key in a desktop file means that the desktop
file will be displayed in all environments.

--remove-not-show-in=ENVIRONMENT
Remove ENVIRONMENT from the list of desktop environments where the desktop files
should not be displayed (key NotShowIn). If ENVIRONMENT was not present in the
list, this operation is a no-op.

--remove-key=KEY
Remove the KEY key from the desktop files, if present.

ENVIRONMENT


Some environment variables change the behavior of desktop-file-install:

DESKTOP_FILE_VENDOR

This variable can be used as an alternative to the --vendor option. If the --vendor
option is used, this environment variable will be ignored.

DESKTOP_FILE_INSTALL_DIR

This variable can be used as an alternative to the --dir option. If the --dir
option is used, this environment variable will be ignored.

RPM_BUILD_ROOT

This variable is set when building RPM packages. If the --dir option and the
DESKTOP_FILE_INSTALL_DIR environment variable are not used, it will automatically
be prepended to the default install directory to install the desktop files
appropriately when building packages.
