desktop file lack main category

add a main category key to desktop files

.desktop files in xfce-utils lack the Category key. From the registered categories (http://standards.freedesktop.org/menu-spec/1.0/apa.html) I'd suggest “Utility”, so attached patch does that.

Previous patch was completely not working, this one will do.

Seems to work fine here; applied in 6cb7ef0.

Was too quick with this and didn't noticed the dup in accessories.
Comment 4 Jérôme Guelfucci editbugs 2011-01-13 00:25:30 CET
What do you mean by "dup in accessories"? The committed patch looks fine to me and desktop-file-validate validates the files correctly. Or I'm missing something?

Forgot the close it, the dups were fixed in http://git.xfce.org/libs/garcon/commit/?id=f64fb983e29ed30c8e1cb32cb66b8a66c03bd247.
