* g_desktop_app_info_new:
* @desktop_id: the desktop file id
* Creates a new #GDesktopAppInfo.
* Creates a new #GDesktopAppInfo based on a desktop file id.
* A desktop file id is the basename of the desktop file, including the
* .desktop extension. GIO is looking for a desktop file with this name
* in the <filename>applications</filename> subdirectories of the XDG data
* directories (i.e. the directories specified in the
* <envar>XDG_DATA_HOME</envar> and <envar>XDG_DATA_DIRS</envar> environment
* variables). GIO also supports the prefix-to-subdirectory mapping that is
* described in the <ulink url="">Menu Spec</ulink>
* (i.e. a desktop id of kde-foo.desktop will match
* <filename>/usr/share/applications/kde/foo.desktop</filename>).
* Returns: a new #GDesktopAppInfo, or %NULL if no desktop file with that id
