SYNOPSIS
       gtk-launch [OPTION...] APPLICATION [URI...]

DESCRIPTION
       gtk-launch launches an application using the given name. The

       suffix.

       If called with more than one argument, the rest of them besides the
       application name are considered URI locations and are passed as
       arguments to the launched application.
