One of the programs that, when I first saw it in Kubuntu, I thought that I would never have any use for. After using it for a bit I now miss it on systems that don't have it. That program is called Katapult and it does more than just Katapult you into a program launch.
After posting my previous tutorial on Manually Installing Firefox I noticed that the Katapult Launcher in Kubuntu was not aware of my newly installed application. Apparently you need to refresh Katapult before it’ll see the changes.
