.xsessionrc makes start-up fail


When I have this as my .xsessionrc file (in home directory of user):
Code:
nvidia-settings -l
it works.
When I added a second line:
Code:
nvidia-settings -l
g2ipmsg
it booted up normally, until the user's X-session started. It would display a (responding) mouse cursor and nothing more. What's up here? Can't I put graphical applications here? Then where can I?

Try on the ~/.Xresources.

Thanks for the suggestion. But, IIUC that is called even before xsessionrc and is mainly used for setting "resources". Also it's very cryptic. So I'm not sure I'll spend time deciphering it, unless I get some positive confirmation on this particular subject.
