  • spatialite-gis icon is currently in the Desktop GIS folder.
  • spatialite-gui is currently in the DB apps folder.

maybe I misunderstand what spatialite-gui does? Is it not a GUI frontend to the spatialite DB? (much like PGadmin3 can be used to investigate PostGIS DBs, or a specialized sqlitebrowser)

You have it correct, -gis is a tool to visualize the data, -gui is a database front end for writing queries. So if it's in the DB folder then that is where it should be.

and why in the virtual machine it is located in the desktop, without being included in a folder?

Replying to kalxas:

and why in the virtual machine it is located in the desktop, without being included in a folder?

because it got moved out of the spatial tools category and into the (virtual) DB_APPS category. (I guess code comments saying that category was automatic/for future use were not clear enough)

i.e. DB apps only show up in the geospatial menu right now, there is no desktop folder for that.

we can either:

  • move it back into spatial tools, or
  • make a new desktop folder called "Databases" containing MySQL Admin, pgAdminIII, SQLiteBrowser, and SpatiaLite? GUI.

Fixed in post RC1 build. A Databases folder exists in Desktop.
