As an additional note the Type field does need to be retained as it is Required by the spec. But awn really should not continue using it in the existing manner.

When attempting to fix Bug #183368 by adding X-AWN-AppletType fields to the desktopfiles, C applets worked correctly but the python applets didn't. May be related to this bug.

Possibly the deprecated use fix is causing the problem. I changed the "Type" field to "Application" as per the wiki's guidelines.

If type is still looking for python, it could cause a problem.

Remarking fix committed. Not the source of issue while fixing Bug #183368
