Bug Description

The menu/desktop launcher for Tuxpaint does not launch tuxpaint. Nothing happens.

Fixed after making /usr/share/applications/tuxpaint.desktop executable (chmod +x /usr/share/applications/tuxpaint.desktop).

I was mistaken about the f ix. I had made a simpler tuxpaint.desktop in my ~/.local/share/applications without name/comment translations that seemed to be the one that was in fact working:

[Desktop Entry]
Name=Tux Paint
Type=Application
Exec=tuxpaint
Icon=tuxpaint
Terminal=false
Categories=Education;Art;
GenericName=Drawing program
Comment=A drawing program for children.

The above works. Maybe one of the translations is a problem?
