I am giving a try to SparkleShare. I have set up a Git repository for that purpose. The examples I see in the web, say that I should configure Sparkleshare from some "tray" icon.


However, in Gnome 3, there is no tray and in recent versions of Fedora there is not even a compatibility tray on the left bottom corner. How do I access the SparkleShare configuration without a tray?

I just tried the command line, but I get a crazy number of errors ending in a segmentation fault:

Debug info from gdb:

Got a SIGSEGV while executing native code. This usually indicates
a fatal error in the mono runtime or one of the native libraries 
used by your application.

In perspective sparkleshare start doesn't work either, so the question could have been titled "SparkleShare doesn't work in Fedora 27".
