comment Appearance of a .desktop file in Nautilus
There is some insight in this question/answer: "Can Nautilus display a .desktop file by its real name?" - askubuntu.com/questions/17220/…

comment Appearance of a .desktop file in Nautilus
@JacobVlijm: why ~/bin/shortcuts? I like to keep my custom shortcuts separately (as opposed to the mess generated by the installation) and then symlinking them to the standard location. Thus I can also backup and auto-share my custom shortcuts among several machines (e.g. using Dropbox or svn). Why custom shortcuts a all? For example: I like to view/edit photos with Irfanview via Wine. Another - I have a shell script that does custom tasks depending on file extension. I need .desktop files to be able to associate files by extension with this script (in Nautilus and GDM).

Well, maybe for nemo, but for Nautilus - not "regardless of the location" according to my observations. Thanks for the answer, but I am looking for a better one. For one, this apparently is a bug/feature, but this does not give me a solution to the stated problem.

@LittleByBlue again, removing Type=Application has no effect. Same .desktop file contents has different behavior depending on location: for example, my shortcuts directory and at ~/.local/share/application.

@LittleByBlue Removing or presence of the Icon= field and valid value does not make a difference, other than the icon next to the entry in Nautilus.

@LittleByBlue But then how come at ~/.local/share/applications it does show the real file names anyway?
