Yes, I have a starter script in /usr/bin/ and are calling that with
exec=myApp from the .desktop file, but still the question is where
standard output is directed to and what the working dir is if I do not
have a shell and start the program via click on the desktop item?

starting the app with
export DISPLAY=:0.0

works fine with working dir=. and the output to the console ...
