Configuration is run through the gpilotd-control-applet application.

To run everything without using a command window (if you so desire), there's a
gnome-pilot applet that can be put in your desktop's panel. This definitely
works in Gnome, and I believe it's meant to work in KDE (I haven't tested it). 

The applet allows you to control the daemon, gives you status while syncing,
and will launch gpilotd-control-applet.

Once gpilotd-control-applet is running, you will see a list of conduits. If the
Evolution conduits are installed, you will see EAddress, ECalendar, EMemos, and
EToDo in the list. Each one can be configured to sync with Evolution.
