Looks like paraview now provides one. However, it uses Version incorrectly. Version refers to the version of the desktop file spec (http://standards.freedesktop.org/desktop-entry-spec/latest/ar01s05.html [^]) not the version of the package. Attached patch fixes.

And much more seriously, the provided .desktop file is missing the Exec=paraview line.
