Should be able to add to your home directory to a file called ' .xinitrc '. Here is an example of mine.
Code:

#!/bin/sh
/usr/X11R6/bin/xscreensaver &

The ' & ' symbol is required to release the program from that session. If you don't have one then create it. If you create one then make it execuable with this command. ' chmod +x .xinitrc '

If you use KDE a link can be placed in your home .kde/Autostart.
