well looks like it's as easy as putting any executable script in ~/.X.d directory.

Hi asi_ka
The files that go into  ~/.X.d  are not scripts, just files that contain commands. The command should be followed by a space and &
to background the task. If you don't do this and the command hangs, it will block the remaining commands.
