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

The desktop entry files are commonly called desktop files.


The following options are supported:

Do not output hints about things that might be improved in the desktop file.

Do not warn about usage of deprecated items that were defined in previous versions
of the specification.
