Minor flaws in distributed installer

Description

The distribution installer hasn't got a review a long time and has actually several minor problems:

  1. The installer fails on updates of certain older versions due to an incompatible .installationinformation file (Message: incompatible installation).

  2. No desktop shortcut icon in UNIX/Linux for uninstaller.
    There is a missing uninstaller icon leading to a desktop shortcut without a picture and a warning message along with the following stacktrace (if installed with -DSTACKTRACE=true):

  3. The SummaryPanel is completely empty for the czech language (hits ).

  4. Broken icon at HTML InfoPanel
    At the end of the text, after "Version check:" there is a broken image shown.

  5. Command line: No locale for: glg

  6. Wrong attributes of Uninstaller KDE shortcut - set to "Run as different user: root" which is not necessary for unprivileged installations to the user home directory and does even fail due to a wrong umask; further set to "Run in terminal: true" by mistake.

  7. Unix desktop shortcuts get duplicated each time the installer is executed (hits ).

  8. There is no local documentation (PDF, HTML etc.) available any longer - just add a shortcut with a link and dedicated icon to the online documentation.

  9. Warning message: Cannot find named resource: 'packsLang.xml' AND 'packsLang.xml_ces'

  10. No cleanup of old libraries in lib/ path - bad libraries in classpath after updates
