If the user decides to add QGIS to the launcher favourites, when the user starts the application, two different icons will be at the launcher bar (see attached file).

To fix this double entrance in the launch bar, we need to add StartupWMClass=QGIS3 to the desktop file, so it knows that the applications are the same.

The desired behaviour is a launch bar with just one icon.

I'm submitting a PR to fix this small issue.
