Which one ISO you are using?
I suppose this is similar to: "Device driver utility (ddu) does not have visible icon" , https://www.illumos.org/issues/7532
. marked as solved but on current /hipster repository installation, there is no visible icon in menu. (not booted from live media but from installed system)

Also used to be reported in: "ddu.desktop file is present in /jack/Desktop/ but icon is not on desktop"
https://www.illumos.org/issues/7532 , that is supposed to be reolved ,
but change didn't make into MATE 1.18 ISO.

I think this bug is still active , until new, next test ISO is created.

The thing is that those .desktop files are missing executable bit and are thus regarded by MATE as "untrusted". I'll provide a patch for slim_source later today.

Question is, why .desktop file would need to have executable bit set?...
I also figured that when executable bit is set. icon is visible,
but .desktop file it is Not an executable so it seems it could be upstream bug? Maybe setting files to executable state here and there could be seen as security issue, because executables that are not executables should not be under .desktop and outside */bin , etc.. ?
