How can I make a symbolic link to run a program with command line argument? For example, I want to run sample with -i eth0 argument every time when I click on a symbol link.


For this use case, I would recommend writing a shell script instead, e.g.

sample -i eth0

Then save the script in /usr/local/bin as e.g. mySample, make it runnable with chmod +x mySample. And there you go :)
