 Replying to [comment:8 intrigeri]:
 > To be useful, wouldn't this .desktop file need to be installed outside
 of the TBB directory, e.g. in ~/.local/share/applications/?

 No. Shipping such a `.desktop` file will allow users to start Tor Browser
 by double-clicking on it in their file manager. That's why the `Exec` line
 is a bit convoluted.
