Description

The items of the Tails menu are duplicated in the System Tools menu.

The Tails menu exists thanks to:

config/chroot_local-includes/usr/share/desktop-directories/Tails.directory

But at .deb creation or installation time (it's not clear at which exact step this is blocking), it does not exist yet, so at least one existing menu must be listed in the application (t-p-s etc.) .desktop file, and that's why they've been to the System Tools menu as well.

This issue could be solved in two ways:

  1. Finding a way of having them only in the Tails menu.
  2. Removing the Tails menu as a workaround.

During the Additional Software UX design, nobody went to look first for "Additional Software" in the "Tails" menu and everybody looked first in "System Tools".
