Template:Filename and Template:Filename allow you to execute commands at the beginning of the X user session, before the Window Manager is started. Therefore it cannot be used to start window-based applications. See Autostarting#Graphical for that.


xprofiles are sourced by KDM (Template:Filename) and GDM (Template:Filename).
