I don't know what's stopping this from getting fixed, but it's been a
known issue for a long time.
Basically, the files in /usr/share/applications need to be in either
category Application or Applications (can't remember which offhand) and
they tend to not be in the right one by default.
Also you need the illume.desktop menu file installed in the etc xdg
