Cool .xsession

Just wondering how I could put

xmodmap -e "pointer = 1 2 3 6 7 4 5"
into my ~/.xsession (which currently doesn't exsist..and I'm on Ubuntu, thats why .xsession and not ~/.xinitrc) without X logging out after executing the final command (which would be the xmodmap command)


Thanks tho =o D

The "final command" should be an
exec <your window manager of choice>
