desktop-file-utils-0.15-1.fc9.i386

eg from an rpm spec:

desktop-file-install --vendor fedora \
     --dir %{buildroot}%{_datadir}/applications %{SOURCE2}

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/Guidelines#Desktop_files

nautilus shows a .desktop file with the icon that it mentions, and
doesn't show the actual extension.
gedit one to see an example
they can be copied where you want eg desktop
