Script when Logging in


Hi.

I'm running RedHat 9. I want a script to run once each time I log into an X session. I want to do fancy stuff like switch my background. I don't want this magical script to run each time I open a terminal, otherwise, I'd just run it from my .tcshrc. So is there some place I can put this script?

Put it in .xinitrc. That should do the trick.
