Ah. Easy is a relative term, it's not particularly pointy clicky to configure,
generally it's a matter of opening two windows, one with the config file and
the other with the man page.

Yup. Although it's largely up to you to configure that menu, the integration
with things like KDE and Gnome (for installed applications) is more than a
little hit and miss.
