Why?  More specifically, can't it be started from the XFCE menu with 
"Run Program" or right-click the desktop and "Create Launcher"?

Can't see your command line.  If it's just a single command, you could 
run it as

   command &

which will run command in the background and leave it running if you 
close the terminal window.
