gnome startup scripts?


I have made a small script that I want to run everytime I start gnome.
Anyone have any tips on how to achieve this?

edit .xinitrc in ur home dir
put all the initialization stuff before u start Gnome

Here is a sample of my .xinitrc

xset +fp $HOME/.fonts
chbg -scenario $HOME/bin/sc1 &
exec /usr/X11R6/bin/fluxbox
Now in ur case replace fluxbox by gnome-session or whatever appropriate on ur sys
remember to put '&' sign for ur script
