Invalid .desktop files

Post by Alexiy » Sun Jul 16, 2017 1:27 pm

I have a question regarding .desktop files in /usr/share/aplications. I have at least one file that points to not-installed application (Vim) and several duplicates of other files.
Is it safe to delete them?

Those files in that directory, on my system are the Menu Items.

You may wish to reconsider deletion candidates.
