I want to run some applications with command line options (for example,
someapp --option=3), and I want to do this by opening the dash, typing the application name and clicking on the appropriate icon.
I assume that I could do this from the launcher (run the application, tick "Keep in launcher" and then tweak the
.desktop file), but I don't want to have to add icons to the launcher.
So, how do I add an icon for
someapp --option=3 to the dash / app lens?
I don't mind somehow adding an extra icon for
someapp --option=3, and seeing both icons when I type
someapp into the dash. However, it would be ideal if I could choose to remove/replace the
someapp icon - in most cases I only ever want to run the app with the option applied. It would be even more ideal if additionally I could add multiple icons, one for
someapp --option=3 and another for
someapp --option=4 - in a few cases I want to choose between different mode.
