#!/bin/sh
exec chromium-browser

copy above code and save with filename.sh than copy this file in /home/tc/.X.D and thats all
filename.sh has execute permission

Do NOT exec.
If you do, the remaining files in .X.d will not be run.

exec replaces the current program with the new one.
The current program is the program that is sourcing the files in .X.d.
If it replaced by chromium browser, it will never have a chance to process any other files in .X.d.
