katapult looks pretty slick, but it doesn't recognize a lot of my apps, let 
alone aliases for apps. 
It seems that if there's not .desktop file for an application, it won't 
recognize it, and I can't even start it if I type the whole command and press 
enter. (Try simply "xterm" for example.)

If it can't find something, couldn't it just dump the command into a shell and 

Furthermore, it can't deal with konqueror's shortcuts, e.g. accessing Qt's API 
docs via "qt widget" doesn't work.

It looks really slick, but it misses a lot of simple things the standard 
[alt]+F2 dialogue provides.

Can this be fixed easily? I can't seem to find any configuration for katapult, 
and on, it says it's basically abandonware. Does it have a new 
maintainer maybe?

Next the statesmen will invent cheap lies, putting the blame upon the nation 
that is attacked, and every man will be glad of those conscience-soothing 
falsities, and will diligently study them, and refuse to examine any 
refutations of them; and thus he will by and by convince himself that the war 
is just, and will thank God for the better sleep he enjoys after this process 
of grotesque self-deception. - Mark Twain
