Question start application when GUI starts ...

I created a small GUI app that I want to popup whenever anyone logs into runlevel 5 (GUI). Please help me configure this. I am running SimplyMepis (Debian Based) with KDE and TWM. I figure there is somewhere where I just open a text file and add:

myprogram &

But, I am at a loss as to what config file it is...
