You can add commands to the .xinitrc file in your home directory. Just make sure you put the commands before the 'exec fluxbox' line.

Okay, what if I want it to start when I'm using GDM? Could it be different with each WM, or is that asking too much? Also, if I want it to load environment values when I log in, such as

Code:
__GL_FSAA_MODE=1

what do I do? Sorry if I'm asking in the wrong thread.
