Bug 892507

Summary: sci-electronics/gspeakers installs .desktop file in unexpected path
Product: Gentoo Linux Reporter: Progenyx <progenyx>
Component: Current packagesAssignee: The Soldering-Iron Brotherhood <sci-electronics>
Status: UNCONFIRMED ---    
Severity: minor    
Priority: Normal    
Version: unspecified   
Hardware: AMD64   
OS: Linux   
Package list:
Runtime testing required: ---

Description Progenyx 2023-01-29 17:38:30 UTC
Upon successful installation of the package I noticed the .desktop file is installed under "/usr/share/gnome/apps/Utilities/" instead of the expected "/usr/share/applications/" which makes it difficult for any menu indexing software to find it, except for Gnome of course.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. # emerge sci-electronics/gspeakers
2. $ qlist -e sci-electronics/gspeakers | grep .desktop
Actual Results:  
step two produces "/usr/share/gnome/apps/Utilities/gspeakers.desktop",

Expected Results:  
when it should produce "/usr/share/applications/gspeakers.desktop"

Also, within the file, the name and comment entries are rendered unreadable by a leading underscore.
