I use Debian Jessie on my laptop. From time to time I have trouble with proper creating Desktop entries for LXDE. I mean files with .desktop extension than can be placed in /etc/xdg/autostart/ or ~/.config/autostart/ or /usr/share/applications/. When they crash nothing happens. What is the way to debug them?

desktop-file-validate /path/to/desktop/file
