  * Don't fail to install the system on BIOS systems (LP: #1780875).
  * Remove the right live task (LP: #1780585).
  * Enable GeoIP support by default, to get accurate timezone readings.
  * Make image and text IDs unique in the slideshow.
  * Ensure that slideshow images correctly respond to their text.
  * Actually install the .desktop file.
