Please describe the problem.

I tried now for hours to understand why the filemanager inegration is just not working. Debug output in Assistent/Install.hs is basically none existent so I don't even know if anything is run at all. There is no dedicated process to get the .desktop files etc created or an example that you could use if the process fails. I'm out of ideas now.

I tried running with GIT_ANNEX_PACKAGE_INSTALL=1 and without, tried to ensure directories exist.

What steps will reproduce the problem?

git annex assistant

What version of git-annex are you using? On what operating system?

Have you had any luck using git-annex before? (Sometimes we get tired of reading bug reports all day and a lil' positive end note does wonders)
