dh_desktop was a debhelper program that registers .desktop files. However, it no longer does anything, and is now deprecated.

If a package ships desktop files, they just need to be installed in the correct location (/usr/share/applications) and they will be registered by the appropriate tools for the corresponding desktop environments.

This program is a part of debhelper.
