Add flag to Linux Mint application start command

Modern Linux desktop distributions contain really powerfull settings possibilities, but it is very often difficult to find out how to configure something. You may want, for example, to add --disk-cache-dir flag to Chromium start command in order to configure cache directory, so how to do it?

  • right click on the menu start button and select "Configure"
  • click on the "Menu" button at the top of the "Menu" window
  • click on the "Open the menu editor" button
  • browse the applications and find the requested one (Chromium in this case)
  • select the application and click on "Properties" button on the right
  • add requested command flag in the "Command" field

The described procedure relates to Linux Mint 19.2 Tina - Cinnamon, but it probably applies also to Linux Mint 19.1 Tessa - Cinnamon and maybe other variants.
