I'm trying to start io.elementary.switchboard (System Settings) with my Thinkpad's settings button, registered as "Tools". I can use it to modify existing actions and it works fine, but I'm not sure how to start Settings with it.

I tried using io.elementary.switchboard as the command to run (since I can run that in the terminal and it works fine and since that's how GNOME does it), but that doesn't work. I also tried prepending the command with exec, which didn't work either.

So tl;dr how to I run a program using a custom keyboard shortcut?
