Description:
Often users don't know how track problems and there's no simple
sollutions for begginiers. I think, that adding additional fields to .
desktop files will helps a lot. Thease fileds should been named
DEBUG_MODE_ON and DEBUG_MODE_RUNNER.
 
Once DEBUG_MODE_RUNNER is not present, there's should exist mechanism
to debug(ex. running konsole and application on it ; or better
redirecting stderr and stdout onto file and asks user to display
it/send/etc. after application quits).

Test Case:
Test that dialog with question about displaying log file don't show
before application quits.

Use Case:
Better can't run some application, because some libraries isn't present
on the system. It will only right click on application runner and
select debug mode.

Business case (Partner benefit):
openSUSE.org: * Developers of application could add custom debug mode
with full featured information gathering and sending log file to
vendor. It could make support better.
* Better forums support.
* A way to create automated tools, which reads logs and perform some
tasks(if user accept)
* Many user don't know how solving problems on Ubuntu. Running
application in terminal don't always be pragmatic, because xterm have
limited buffer for text. Also, running terminal isn't very simple.
