Hello I have a small netbook with tegra, and I'm trying to create Image Frame when someone turn on a netbook. If I add to init.d Starting script for my graphic application will it run before GNOME desctop, is this good way to do that functionality?

No, it's a terrible way. Add it to the appropriate xinitrc that your distro uses (try looking in /etc/X11), before it execs the desktop environment.

You could also add an entry to your crontab(5) at @reboot time. This can even be done without root privilege, for a particular user.

Except that it won't have access to X this way either. – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Oct 26 '12 at 15:17
