Adding Non-steam Game .desktop files
When importing a .desktop file I had setup like
Exec=env VARIABLENAME=stuff /usr/bin/gamename
When selecting that .desktop file it was not recognizing it and not showing up on the list, once I removed the env portion it worked
Exec=/usr/bin/gamename
That's great and all but what keeps Steam from just taking whatever is between Exec= and the end of the line or parsing as per http://standards.freedesktop.org/desktop-entry-spec/desktop-entry-spec-latest.html?

Steam does seem to parse .desktop files, but only to find the programs actual location. Does the program not support you passing the same data as a launch option? Maybe you'd be better off writing a short bash script?
