Unfortunately software is not running under Manjaro. Can I fix this?

@PhCl It works fine, thanks! Afaik it is quite common to add a custom .desktop file this way to the package, when not already present in the sources. I also noticed the template you mention, I think it is used internally by the application to create a shortcut on the desktop (the application prompts a request to the user to create it when it is started for the first time).

@m-pilia Thanks, I pushed a new version that creates a Desktop file. Please let me know if you see any problems.

I don't know much about the Desktop standard, so I just took your file. I noticed that Arena ships a template file: /opt/arena/Integration/Desktop/userapp-Arena_linux.desktop.template

However, I'm not sure how use that template. If someone knows, feel free to send me a patch. I assume it is the official way to create the Desktop file.
