[Pharo-project] Silly question: how to start up pharo on a given image?

Dear all,

this may be a silly question, but I can't find the answer in the pharo
book or on the list:

how do you start pharo on a specific image? in Visualworks, you'd do

$vw imagename

and from then on, the image and change file would be saved in
imagename's directory.

But in pharo, it seems the imagename I give on the command line is
ignored, and I always start with the default image (which, on my
archlinux system, is located at /usr/share/pharo).
Since that directory is not writable by default and it contains the
change file, I get all sort of errors.
Perhaps it is an installation issue?
