xwindow scripts

Im am wanting to launch spesific programs for spesific users logging in on X.
I have found many fourms saying that /etc/profile file is the place to put the command lines but this will load up the same for every user. So is there a file which does this (like .bashrc). and if this is not the case is there a way to do it using the profile file. using the current enviroment.

Editing the .bash_profile in a user's home dir would work, but probably isn't the best way to do this if the programs need to be run under X. In that case it would be better to use the window manager's "startup programs" controls.

On most X systems, the file is called ~/.xsession or ~/.xinitrc, depending on how the X server is started.  If not, you'll have to look around in the system dirs such as /etc/X11/... or something.
