OMG, thank you so much Subbu, that did it! :-D
The xprop command did already return that exact output, but it wasn't until
adding that line you said to my .desktop file that it worked.
99%, anyway. I'd hoped I'd be able to have a .desktop file for a specific
image (so it can have its own icon, instead of the Squeak icon).
# standard Squeak icon for launching any image
the other, for MyApp,
# for launching MyApp's image.
I put both of the above into separate .desktop files at
~/.local/share/applications. After an afternoon of tinkering, what I found
was a little strange -- for the icon, Ubuntu 18.04 seems to use whichever
desktop file was launched first. However, even though it gets the icon
wrong, it at least uses the right Exec= vm specification. I tried
changing the StartupWMClass on one of them, but it didn't work. But, I can
at least work again.. :)
