Just upgraded Remmina on my two 12.04 Alpha test systems and while the package fixed another bug, there is no menu entry in Gnome 3 or Unity.

Please find attached a debdiff to install the desktop file. The patch is based on the upstream GIT commits 569d9bb702d06c061dfbbf3c590d57ea83a04369 and f7d1038ba358a295fb46c681db5c47e4ead97306 .

The package is named 1.0.0-1ubuntu2 as I also provided a debdiff for #926619 named 1.0.0-1ubuntu1.
