A .desktop must always have a section [Desktop Entry]. If you use a
different section name for the main entry, you should pick another
suffix. I'd suggest to use [Desktop Entry] with a Type of
X-Squeeze-Archiver (btw. the Version field in a .desktop is the version
of the spec required by the file, so 1.0; use X-Squeeze-Version if you
want to give archivers a version number),
