  Check if /opt installation is correct

Status in ARB Lint:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  Check if /opt installation is correct.

  our package should install most files in
  /opt/extras.ubuntu.com/<packagename>. This includes all libraries,
  binaries, and configuration files. [Note: This is different from the
  standard requirements for Debian/Ubuntu packages, and will produce
  several lintian warnings for 'dir-or-file-in-opt', which you can
  ignore.] There are several exceptions to this general rule:

   * The standard files in /usr/share/doc/<packagename> are permitted, such as copyright, changelog, and examples.
   * The .desktop file is installed in the standard location /usr/share/applications, but must have the prefix 'extras-' added to its 
      name. Example: extras-foobar.desktop for a package named foobar.
