       desktop-file-validate - Validate desktop entry files

       desktop-file-validate  [--no-hints] [--no-warn-deprecated] [--warn-kde]

       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.

	      Warn  about  usage  of KDE extensions to the specification. This
	      includes the use of the KDE Desktop Entry group, of the Service‐
	      Types, DocPath, Keywords, InitialPreference, Dev, FSType, Mount‐
	      Point, ReadOnly, UnmountIcon keys, or of the  Service,  Service‐
	      Type and FSDevice types.
