comment Running a .desktop file in the terminal
This gives the best result so far, but it produces undesirable behavior sometimes. It happens whenever the "Exec=" line has an argument like %u or %i. Bash tries to pass that string as a regular argument. For instance, doing grep '^Exec' firefox.desktop | sed 's/^Exec=//' opens Firefox with a tab that loads www.%u.com.

Thanks for the answer, but compiz is not an option (unfortunately). I'm using a really low end computer here.
