INSTSUITE-2355 : [host os] [linux] [start menus] Installing Workbench on a non english Linux host distribution does not install desktop shortcut

Defect #: INSTSUITE-2355
Previous IDWIND00324438
Found In Version2.4
Fix Version2.5
Severity:Standard
Status:Fixed
Created Date:12/21/2011
Component/s :Suite Installer
Required RPM Updates:Suite Installer

Description

If you install on a French Ubuntu, the Workbench shortcuts will not appear in the desktop. 
This happens because the desktop directory is not ~/Desktop anymore: in the latest versions of Gnome, it is translated to the locale language. Example: ~/Bureau is the desktop directory in French.

Workaround

Move the links from ~/Desktop to ~/Bureau (if the language is French).

Steps to Reproduce

1.) Install <product> on a French (or any other non english) host.
