I am on Ubuntu 12.04 with KDE. I'd like to use the xdg-desktop-icon tool because it can be scripted and works cross desktop.

Made a minimal file: test.desktop

[Desktop Entry]

Encoding=UTF-8
Type=Application

Exec=test
Icon=test

Name=test

Used xdg-desktop-icon...

xdg-desktop-icon install --novendor test.desktop

Exit code is 0. (Success.) But... I do not see any new icons on my desktop. Also not after reboot. How to use the xdg-desktop-icon tool correctly?
