One bit of arcana worth knowing for just this situation is that all the
menu items correspond to .desktop files in the /usr/share/applications/
directory. A grep -r in there will often dig up useful info, then once
you find the .desktop file, the "Exec" line in it gives the actual command
that is executed by the menu item.

No doubt it should be easier to discover this stuff, but I find digging
through the applications directory is often the best way to discover
info I need :-).
