update-desktop-database (desktop-file-utils package) may not be installed (and it is not installed by default on servers). fails in that case currently.

Steps to Reproduce

1) Get a new, clean Ubuntu server (on Google cloud or locally with VirtualBox)
2) Clone the github repo (git clone
3) Run ./
4) Notice it fails because ~/.local/share/applications does not exist
