Hi,

I try to exec an script in terminal and I found that option Terminal=true does not work in a Desktop file.
It's easy to reproduce, you can test it with galculator.desktop

What can I do? How to open an issue about that?

again?

Testing in Lubuntu I don't see a problem.
What's you're base system.

Tested using this desktop file.
Save as test.desktop and make executable.

[Desktop Entry]
Name=test
Icon=info
Exec=notify-send -i info "Its working"
Terminal=true
Type=Application
StartupNotify=true

Note that when a command or script ends the terminal will close.
