For KDE you can put a symbolic link to an executable in the directory home/username/.kde/autostart

For GNOME just go to system -> preferences -> startup applications

Actually this will be executed after login not after starting X server – ghm1014 Aug 29 '12 at 22:46
@ghm1014 Okay should try and restate your question then since you ask "after starting X Server" – JMeterX Aug 29 '12 at 22:57
