Bug#773930: vim-common ships a desktop file but no icon

Package: vim
Version: 2:7.4.488-3
Severity: minor


On current jessie and sid systems, the package vim-common ships a desktop file
but no icon. The icons are shipped in package vim-gui-common, which is pulled
in only if installing a gui-enabled vim package (vim-athena, vim-gtk or vim-
gnome). This results in an inconless entry in MATE's menu (maybe other desktops
use the icon shipped by app-install-data, but obviously MATE doesn't).
