Any options you are running Eterm can be added to a link in Autostart.

On the desktop, right-click, create new, link to application. In the execute tab, type in the command you want. Any program you can start with a command from the CLI, you can put in there. Once you get it doing what you want, you can move the link to Autostart.

If you are looking to get programs to run after logging into a terminal, then you could put them at the end of your .bash_profile . man bash for more info.

If you want them to start after starting X, then you could put them at the end of your .xinitrc . man startx for more info.

actually, ~/.xsession may be a better choice. Although, from the original post this is the solution that was first attempted (?) IF so, maybe post the part of the file, because they should not close.
