I recently installed UGet download manager.

When I try to open it, it is showing the error:

Failed to launch "UGet"

Desktop file didn't specify Exec field

How to handle this issue?

The .desktop file should look like this...

/usr/share/applications$ ls -al uget*
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 296 Mar 16  2018 uget-gtk.desktop

/usr/share/applications$ more uget-gtk.desktop

[Desktop Entry]
Name=uGet

Terminal=false
