It depends. I'm using KDE 3 and all I do is make an app link inside the Autostart folder. The folder is located at:

~/.kde/Autostart

I used Konqueror to create the app link inside the folder.

I believe there's something similar for GNOME. For other window managers, it'll probably be handled by more obscure text files that are parsed by X at startup.

Add or edit your rc.local script.

In Gnome: Start, Extras, Preferences, Sessions. Click on add and you can have it start the program at startup.
