Bug Description

Both of Onboard's .desktop files have a MimeType set but without a code for the Exec key for a filename to be passed.

As one way to fix this issue, the Debian maintainer has removed the MimeType line from the .desktop files.

Lintian has more information about this problem.

@Francesco, do we need the MimeType entries for anything? It seems quite useless for onboard-sessings.desktop, but is there a use case for onboard.desktop?
I believe opening *.onboard layout files would usually require extra work anyway to circumvent the single-instance checker. Clicking a layout file and switching Onboard to it at runtime isn't supported either.

I don't remember any special use of the MimeType in Onboard and considering that Onboard does not use any file associations, removing the MimeType from the desktop entries to silence the lintian warnings should not have any adverse side effect.

OK, they are gone, no more MimeType entries in trunk. Thanks for reporting, Jeremy.
