A .desktop file got added upstream a couple of months ago ( Looks like new package releases don't happen often though so I don't know how long it'll be before it's updated.

Nitrogen added the nitrogen.desktop in a year ago. Please, close a bug.

IMHO the easiest solution is to add it in our package
