I'd like to use xdg-open monero: to invoke a monero gui wallet and to have the address pre-populated.

From what I can tell this is not possible at this time.

monero-wallet-gui --help doesn't indicate any option to pass the monero address

monero-wallet-gui monero: only opens the wallet and doesn't populate it with the address.

As an alternative, mymonero (installed with snap) works with xdg-open monero:. Mymonero is opened, but the address is not populated.

See: https://github.com/mymonero/mymonero-app-js/issues/371

Using the Monero CLI is not an option for my use case because it requires that the address & tx_amount are included in the uri. And if it hard fails if the tx_amount isn't provided

See: https://github.com/monero-project/monero/issues/7644

Any other options?
