In that case, you may want to look at this issue:


It seems that the executable name needs to match the "stem" of the desktop
entry file name. So, if the application provides a com.example.my_app.desktop
file, the executable file needs to be com.example.my_app and this is set using
glib_set_prgname in GTK apps. I can't find an equivalent to this in Qt apps at
the moment.

I only discovered those issues today, so thanks really should go to the Qt
Wayland maintainer for writing his blog about it. :-)
