Bug Description

Rev 712 in the future branch ( was targeted as a fix to this bug:

This fix, however, won't work. WINE stores its .desktop folders in separate folders under ~/.local/share/applications/wine/Programs/.

I think the only solution would be to scan this folder recursively to find all of the .desktop files wine creates.

I can confirm this issue and am experiencing same problems. I think best solution for this will be to look for all .desktop files using locate command, or at least scan most common locations including that of Wine

The correct way to locate .desktop files used in menus isn't to recursively scan ~/.local/share/applications for them. It is to scan the .menu XML files under ~/.config/menus/applications-merged/ and pull them in from those fields.
