Sorry for asking a simple quesiton, I am new to the freedesktop. I
have read the latest spec, but still not clear if I can put
application *.desktop to different locations such as
/usr/local/application2/application2.desktop, etc.. If it can, what I
should to do to make those applications listed in desktop based on
user ID or group ID? Appreciate any helps.

Thank you.

Kind regards,
