I am looking for a technically valid value for this line:

Result:

Hi
Have a look here;
http://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:Packaging_guidelines#Desktop_files
http://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:Packaging_desktop_menu_categories#Education

Update via;
%suse_update_desktop_file -r %{name} %{name} Education Astronomy

Astronomy...hmmm
