Alternatively, as the link is only needed in one qube, create a custom
Remember that you can use qvm-run in dom0 to launch applications in
appVMs. So you can create a simple .desktop file which will run the
command in the required qube, using either qubes-desktop-run or qvm-run.
(HINT - open a terminal in the qube and find out what command you need
to run to start the application. Then try that command in dom0 using
qvm-run. THEN edit the desktop file to use that command.)
Then just write a custom menu entry calling that desktop file.
