If you don't have the 0launch command, download it from the web-site, which also contains documentation about how the Zero Install system works.

ROX-Session sets up your desktop when you log in, and starts any applications you ask it to. It allows you to set various settings, such as the default font, cursor blinking and mouse behaviour (through a separate applications applets). It also allows you to choose a window manager, and change between window managers without logging out.
