Bug Description

Binary package hint: specimen

The deb package in universe for the specimen sampler doesn't create a XDG menu entry or .desktop file in /usr/share/applications.

Oh yeah, here's a good example of one to use:

[Desktop Entry]
Encoding=UTF-8
Type=Application
Name=Specimen
GenericName=Specimen
Comment=Sound Sampler
Icon=specimen.png
TryExec=specimen
Exec=specimen
Terminal=false
Categories=Application;AudioVideo;AudioVideoEditing;Music;

Yup, specimen doesn't show up on the desktop. As well, specimen doesn't even appear to work without jackd, even though it doesn't require jackd, merely recommending it.

Philip, thanks for the bug report and .desktop suggestion.

Nice. The extension in the icon is not required. (Icon=specimen is OK)

Attaching a debdiff. Make sure to check it very well before uploading, it's my first debdiff and I'm not very experienced with packaging in general.

Shoot. My apologies Vassilis, I did this without even realizing you already had a diff. Anyway, it has been uploaded. Please keep an eye on it and close as fix released.

I also pinged upstream to see if they will include the desktop file in the original source. Thank you.

Well you fixed bug 569 so I can't hold any grudges against you :P (after all, there are plenty on motureviewers waiting for you :-) Hopefully upstream will include this.
