yay! cool, great, nice, thankx!

There’s an error when I try to run it from gnome shell:

galeon gnome-shell[3228]: error: Failed to launch “OpenTTD”: Desktop file didn’t specify Exec field

Looks like snapd filtered out the Exec line:

[Desktop Entry]
X-SnapInstanceName=openttd
Type=Application
Version=1.0
Name=OpenTTD
Icon=/var/lib/snapd/snap/openttd/2/meta/gui/openttd.png
Terminal=false
Categories=Game;
Comment=A clone of Transport Tycoon Deluxe
Keywords=game;simulation;transport;tycoon;deluxe;economics;multiplayer;money;train;ship;bus;truck;aircraft;cargo;

That’s because of:

snapd[1386]: taskrunner.go:439: DEBUG: Running task 3683 on Do: Make snap "openttd" (2) available to the system
snapd[1386]: desktop.go:129: cannot use line "Exec=openttd-casept.openttd %u" for desktop file "/var/lib/snapd/desktop/applications/openttd_openttd.desktop" (snap openttd)

The meta/gui/openttd.desktop files appears incorrect indeed.

Opened a PR with a fix https://github.com/diddlesnaps/openttd/pull/2
