Hi
Normally I create a wrapper script an put in /usr/bin (or ~/bin) and then create a someapp.desktop file pointing at the script.

Here is one I use to autostart tilda on login to the desktop;



cat ~/.config/autostart/tilda.desktop

[Desktop Entry]
Encoding=UTF-8
Name=Tilda
Exec=/usr/bin/tilda
Icon=tilda
Terminal=false
Type=Application
Categories=GNOME;GTK;Application;Utility;TerminalE mulator;
