[SailfishDevel] Error installing .desktop file

I am adding a subproject to my project, and since I did, the build stops with:

  + desktop-file-install --delete-original --dir /home/deploy/installroot/usr/share/applications '/home/deploy/installroot/usr/share/applications/*.desktop'
 Error on file "/home/deploy/installroot/usr/share/applications/*.desktop": No such file or directory
error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.dspzIi (%install)

I've been through google, duckduckgo and the list archive, and the only thing I could find, that was slightly interesting is: https://lists.sailfishos.org/pipermail/devel/2013-November/001118.html and that doesn't really apply here?

The .pro and .yaml file are at https://gist.github.com/tanghus/840ce2ad46ea691f2b932e796dade0d8


I hope this gets thru. Kmail has decided not to send emails, so I'm using Nextclouds web mail.
