Do you mean it's not on your path, or that you want it to sit in
a particular working directory?

Would something like this work? Instead of:


...would one of these work?

Exec:PATH=/where/it/lives someprogram
Exec: cd /where/you/want; someprogram

I have not read the desktop entry standard, so for all I know
there is a big section saying "do not do this", of course :)
