Every time the installer is run, it asks to create an icon on the

The installer should remember that this option was declined and
default the checkbox to that state on the next run.


there are some options available for this

 -N --no-startmenu                 Disable creation of start menu shortcut
 -d --no-desktop                   Disable creation of desktop shortcut
