Post Run a program when logging to Linux.


Hello.
I use Debian 8.6 x64 and I want to run a program when logging to my Linux. How can I do it?
I mean is something like Windows OS startup.


Thank you.

I think it was already discussed several times, so you only need to look for those threads.
But actually it is explained on the man page of bash, look for invocation of interactive shell

I assume by "logging" you mean "logging in", but you still need to clarify further. GUI login? Local console login? SSH login? All of the above? Just the first login after boot or all of them?
