I2P browser doesn't start after incremental upgrade to Tails 1.2
when lauching the i2p browser, the warning show up but multiple users waited more thant 30 minutesand the i2p browser didn't start. I found that in the logs (.xsession-errors):
Everything is Ok
unzip: cannot find or open /var/lib/i2p-browser/chroot//usr/local/lib/tor-browser/browser/omni.ja, /var/lib/i2p-browser/chroot//usr/local/lib/tor-browser/browser/omni.ja.zip or /var/lib/i2p-browser/chroot//usr/local/lib/tor-browser/browser/omni.ja.ZIP.

After installing incremental upgrades Tails' root filesystem consists
of a stack squashfs:s, not only filesystem.squashfs. When not stacking
them correct we may end up using the Tor Browser (Firefox) from an
older version of Tails, or with no Tor Browser at all, as in the
upgrade from Tails 1.1.2 to 1.2, when we migrated from Iceweasel to
the Tor Browser.
Based on patch contributed by sanic.

kytv, may you please have a look? Assuming it worked back when anonym merged your work for 1.2, I guess it was caused by one of last changes for the migration to TBB / FF31.
