Where Is the Katapult Configuration Dialog?

So you’ve started using Katapult, but your distro doesn’t show the Katapult icon in the system tray by default. How do you get to the configure dialog? For that matter, how do you bring back the system tray icon?

Simple: Type Ctrl+C after you bring up the Katapult dialog to bring up the right-click menu.


Hit Ctrl+C at this point, and you’ll see the configure menu:


Once there, you can add the systray icon if you’d like by just checking the box for “Show an icon in the systray”


Is it just me, or is Ctrl+C the most counterintuitive mechanism you can think of for a configuration dialog?
