"Why not just launch your rdesktop from your launcher. For default Ubuntu just hit:

Alt+F2

and then enter your command in the the entry box:

rdesktop 147.145.168.224 &

Although I don't use the ampersand (&) for mine. Typically my command is:

rdesktop -u myUname -fP 10.130.3.13

This opens rdesktop in fullscreen mode and enables bitmap caching. To get back to my desktop I just have to hit:

Ctrl+Alt+Enter

And then the same combo to get back into fullscreen."
