Bug Description

In other words the Actions=Window; is not being seen in the quicklist (Open a New Window

It will however show up if there is an empty X-Ayatana-Desktop-Shortcuts= line

So this currently works to expose the quicklist item

X-Ayatana-Desktop-Shortcuts=
Actions=Window;

[Desktop Action Window]
Name=Open a New Window

Thanks for reporting this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better.

This problem is because Unity doesn't yet support the new Actions spec. I'm going to mark this as a duplicate of bug 942042.
