Hi, I am packaging the application tnef , where the reviewer has
queried whether I need to provide a desktop file.
This is a little different from a normal GUI application desktop file.
The application is command line only. I have added a shellscript, and
some desktop files that cause nautilus and kde file managers to show
.dat files as having a potential open with tnef extract entry.
So while I'm including .desktop files, they aren't in the menus. Is this
acceptable, packaging wise ?
Sure, if there's nothing to put in menus that would be useful without a
filename (or other non-static) argument.
