Comment (by intrigeri):

 To be useful, wouldn't this .desktop file need to be installed outside of
 the TBB directory, e.g. in ~/.local/share/applications/? If so, given the
 regular TBB install process can't do that, how do we tell the user they
 should go through this additional step? And how does it play with the
 incremental upgrade process?
