Forwarding from: http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=433372

The categories specified in desktop/armagetronad.desktop.in are noncompliant with Freedesktop.org standards. They should probably be changed to something like this:

Categories=Game;ActionGame;

The desktop-file-utils package in Debian-like systems contains a program, desktop-file-validate, which can be used to check for problems in .desktop files.

    Yeah, those were required for some older distributions, the menu entries would not appear for them. But yay for standardization.
