I've dragged the application launcher from main menu to the docky panel. Now, I want to change the command that starts the application (I need to add some arguments). I can change it the main menu using editor.

How to change it in the Docky launcher? Does Docky store the launcher files somewhere so they can be edited?

I am using Docky 2.2.0 (bzr docky r1807 ppa) on Ubuntu 10.10

According to Robert Dyer (here), you should change the launcher at the main menu and then drag it to Docky because the launcher at Docky can't be configured directly.
