Re: Start a VirtualBox VM as a Service
I see two options here.
One, make it run at boot. You'd have to create a startup script for it, and tell it to run on a different virtual terminal as a user (although i'm not sure how you'd get around having to log in), with its own X-server. This would feel pretty useless to me but could be done i think.
I think more of what you're after is to have it start on login, running as your user, and available to run in seamless mode. In which case you would add the command you posted to whatever login script your window manager uses.
For me, I added a button for that command to my menu. I don't use widnows much, but its right there if i need it.
