dh_desktop was a debhelper program that registers .desktop files.
However, it no longer does anything, and is now deprecated.
+If a package ships desktop files, they just need to be installed in the
+correct location (/usr/share/applications) and they will be registered by
+the appropriate tools for the corresponding desktop environments.
