[Slackbuilds-users] Small change to kodi.desktop

I just installed Kodi for the first time in awhile, and I noticed that when 
using plank (a dock), I am not able to keep the Kodi icon in the dock as a 
launcher. Additionally, a generic icon is displayed in the dock when it is 
running, rather than the icon provided by the theme. It turns out that if you 
add this line:


to kodi.desktop, both problems are resolved. Based on the freedesktop.org 
standards for desktop entries, TryExec seems pretty important, and therefore 
leaving it out may cause other applications in addition to plank to not handle 
it optimally. Can the SlackBuild be patched to add that line to kodi.desktop?
