dpkg -s desktop-file-utils

dpkg -S /usr/bin/update-desktop-database
fingered desktop-file-utils, here's the debian info for that package
Comment 2 Andre Klapper maemo.org 2009-02-10 20:01:24 UTC
String comes from desktop-file-utils-0.15/src/update-desktop-database.c .

Filed upstream at http://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=20039 .

Comment 6 Andre Klapper maemo.org 2011-11-28 12:08:45 UTC
Closing the remaining open bug reports for "Mer" in bugs.maemo.org as WONTFIX,
as Mer now has its own bugtracker at 


Please file a bug report in http://bugs.merproject.org/ if the problem that you
reported here still happens in a recent version of Mer published on
http://releases.merproject.org .
