What desktop are you using? KDE? Gnome? XFCE? something else? After your "normal" desktop login, does everything work as it should? Can you post the output of this command.
Code:
ls /etc/init.d/
jdk

Do you mean a terminal? or a tty? For the latter the short cut is Ctl-Alt-F1 (or F2-F6). To get back to your Gnome environment you use Ctl-Alt-F7.

I'm not sure I understand your main question. You say "I get a command window to enter debian login". Are you saying you have to log in twice?
It is normal in Debian to see the TTY until it loads the GUI (in your case when gdm3 is executed). This is not a bug; this is a feature. It's a good thing. If there's a problem then you'll get some warning and information about the nature of the problem.

Again, I'm not entirely sure about what you're seeing.

Regarding the short cut to a terminal, it should appear in your Gnome menu. If you want to set it up on your desktop then follow the Gnome procedure for doing that. Since I don't use Gnome I can't tell you what the gnome terminal is called or how to set up a shortcut on your desktop. With Kde you just right-click on the screen and a menu appears. You place your cursor on "Create new..." and then click on "Link to application" and a shortcut to the terminal will appear on your desktop.
