Error in file "/usr/share/applications/org.kde.kdeconnect_open.desktop"

Post by peter_b »

[PROBLEM]
Got this error while installing a new package (on Xubuntu 20.04):
Error in file "/usr/share/applications/org.kde.kdeconnect_open.desktop": "*/*" is an invalid MIME type ("*" is an unregistered media type)
[SOLUTION]
The '*/*' in that kdeconnect Desktop file seems to be syntactically incorrect and should be replaced by:

Code: Select all

MimeType=application/octet-stream;
See this thread for details:
