Im trying to find any easy way to make things happen, I'll give examples of things I do in ubuntu that I want to hopefully be able to do within raspbian. So far I know that the file manager is pcmanfm, the dynamic dns updater that I use just automatically runs on startup where it never did in ubuntu, you can't get certain things that I find useful, like dconf-editor. I know its a lightweight environment and that there is a bunch of stuff you have to do manually, but I want to narrow it down to having my mumble server script on the desktop so I can put it in a terminal to start or stop it so I can apply my server configurations and reboot the server.


1. Startup applications: in ubuntu theres obviously the program to help, nothing as far as I can see is preinstalled.


( I specifically need this to boot the tightvncserver )

Update: I configured the ssh server to run... so if no reply on how to set this up, I figure I can just ssh into the machine with remmina or putty and start it that way


2. Running scripts: certain program scrips I used like mumble-server.sh , I would just open a terminal, do the sudo -s, then once in root, I'd just drag and drop the script into the terminal to start it in its needed privelage level.  I can't seem to do that here and I'd like to so i can see and confirm that the script executed.


3. Make shortcuts of scripts on the desktop (Actually.... this isn't needed, turns out the script to run or stop the server can just simply be moved out of the one folder, but... if you know I'd stilll like to know too :P )
