I am looking for an easy way to start a normal sailfish app in developer mode (it means wiff all right). For filebrousers its not the problem because we have som patches. Since it is not possible to change Wifi or BT from nomal apps. Maybe it only a short line? Thanks in advance. I will test follow ways:

sudo /usr/share/applications/myappapplication.desktop


sudo /home/nemo/

and in script is written

exit $?

I am only a beginner but I work on it - sorry for this simple question!

you should find the executable for your app in /usr/bin/, i.e. /usr/bin/myapplication.
