But users usually do not have it if the system is not localised to english.

So what happned to me was that after the installer had downloaded and whatever it does it failed to write to Desktop, and it errored out.

It should better dump the start link at users home root, and put up a message about it.

At best it should investigate what the desktop folder is named and put the start link there.

WORKAROUND:
$ ln -s ~/thenameofdesktopfolder ~/Desktop

Before running the installer, or run installer again

EDIT: Above is for Mageia 5. Development version of Mageia 6 actually do have "Desktop" folder /EDIT
