Hi Micha,

Regarding our questions:
1. Now we use the OSGeoLive PPA to build the DVD, so UbuntuGIS is 
disabled in the builds.
I have copied spatialite packages few days back.
I frequently check UbuntuGIS to pull new packages, but a heads up would 
be nice to wake me up in some cases :)
The idea is to have OSGeoLive Nightly PPA synced with UbuntuGIS Unstable 
as much as possible. At the same time OSGeoLive nightly builds are a 
good way to test packages before pushing to UbuntuGIS IMHO.
e.g. right now the nightly PPA has postgis 2.1.1, which is ahead of 

2. The trunk/bin/install_desktop.sh is responsible to make menu items 
work. Please check that and also the trunk/desktop-conf folder for xml 
settings that are used.
