No way to change Tasque Preferences without a systray icon
Status in “tasque” package in Ubuntu:
Binary package hint: tasque
When you first run Tasque, it asks you about your personal
preferences. Once you close this dialogue, you can access it again by
right-clicking Tasque systray icon and choosing preferences.
In Natty, however, Tasque menu has only a File button (which contains
only a Close button inside), and it has no systray icon (because it is
blacklisted), nor it relies on an indicator. There isn't a specific
command to access that dialogue through command line either.
Therefore, it is impossible to change its preferences in Natty; the
only way to do that is by whitelisting the application using dconf-
editor, which was what I did. This is not an optimal solution, IMO.
Solutions (both short and long term):
1) Provide a button in the menu to access preferences dialogue
2) Make it appindicator-compliant (putting it into its own menu or, perhaps, date-time indicator)
3) Use Unity Launcher API to make preferences available on right-click (not ideal, I guess)
3) Whitelisting it for Natty
