ktown+qemu users assistance needed. Who can check if kbuildsycoca complains about qemu.desktop missing Exec=?


Hello, everyone.

I got annoyed about kbuildsycoca4 complaining about a missing Exec= line in /usr/share/applications/qemu.desktop , so I decided to file a bug in qemu about this https://bugs.launchpad.net/qemu/+bug/1868221

However, qemu guys say that kbuildsycoca is wrong about interpreting .desktop files, and that apps with "NoDisplay" should not be reported.

I don't have the fresh kbuildsycoca though (I presume kde5 does have something like it?). Who can check if kde5 complains about a wrong qemu.desktop?

If it does, I'll file a bug in KDE.

Just appending this line to qemu.dektop makes kbuildsycoca4 happy:
Code:
Exec=nothing
No big deal, this just needs a cat command when building the package.

Well, sure it does. But I'd still like to inform the people in charge about the problem, not just throw it under the carpet on my own machine.
