Add Java Executable in CurseForge's Minecraft Settings

Some users on Linux, like myself, use the 'java executables' box to run a script to make sure to run Minecraft with the dedicated GPU, not integrated, since Linux doesn't automatically run Java applications with the dedicated GPU.

It's more than a little annoying that every time I launch Minecraft, I have to add the link to the script, especially if it has a long path. Having it set as an automatic setting would be great.

Also having the option to skip loading the launcher, like in Modrinth would be greatly appreciated.
Modrinth already possesses these features, and if it weren't so buggy (atleast in my experience), I would have absolutely switched, especially since it is open-source.

Thank you for your time.

    If I remember right, doesn't the CurseForge app have a section in the Minecraft's part of the "Settings" tab specifically for that?

    Should be right at the bottom, labelled "Additional Arguments", right?
