How do I tweak the start parameters of GUI apps?
There are many GUI apps on my computer that show up as eg. items in the start menu. When I launch these, what if I want to control how exactly they are launched, such as setting environment variables or adding additional parameters?
For example, I can of course type
SOME_ENVAR=foo gedit --some-argument in the console. But I don't normally launch gedit from the console, I click on its menu item or it opens automatically when I double click on text files.
