Remastersys Troubleshooting in Australis

Here's my experience with my first Remastered copy. When I needed to reinstall using it, first of all the installer in splash wouldn't advance to where it should but instead went to desktop. I realized there was no desktop icon installed either. The drop menu showed nothing as well. Going into the Main Menu, Install RELEASE was shown installed there but inaccessible. Finally after hours of research I found a post about menus. I went to /usr/share/applications, located the Install RELEASE icon there and was able to create a new launcher for it in System Tools. Then created a new desktop launcher also. These both seem to work but I shouldn't have had to go thru this. I've used Remastersys for a couple of years, installed it on several linux os with never a problem. Install RELEASE can't work properly because of the poor main menu setup. It's not like any Alacarte I've ever seen, many applications get duplicated in the "Other" column but can't be accessed or removed. Please take a look at your Main Menu setup. I love Australis-Mate and would hate to let it go because I can't get a working remaster. Not exactly a newbie but not all that advanced either. But I certainly learned something about menu settings today.

LQ has no ties to Australis, it would be a better idea to contact the developer about these issues.
