It depends what desktop environment you are using. Some like Gnome do not display desktop items; Not by default anyway. I wouldn't know because I do not use Gnome.

What type of file is it? Where did you get it from?

Generally it is not recommended to install software outside of Debian's repos without knowing completely what you are doing. There is plenty of documentation on the internet about install software on Linux. Whether it is from the package manager. tarballs or shell files.

'No one' what?

Ask whoever produced it what you are supposed to do with it.

In some way that file should be installed in "linux", then there is one more file, but it is only an update of the file I'm trying to install now. And i cant find any explanation online for the format *-qt ..
