1) Install and execute xterm

2) Gain root. For advise see ...

... or install  


3) as root, type:

     /etc/init.d/dropbear start

I don't advise you to always start dropbear (too much risky). It's better to:

1) add the following lines to /etc/sudoers (be careful not to brick your 

user ALL = NOPASSWD: /etc/init.d/dropbear start
user ALL = NOPASSWD: /etc/init.d/dropbear stop

2) Install "CPU/Mem/Screenshot applet with run command" from... 


... and add shortcuts for "sudo /etc/init.d/dropbear start" 
and "sudo /etc/init.d/dropbear stop"
