It depends on what desktop environment / window manager you're using.

For example, you can set a classic gnome startup app (system -> preferences ->
startup applications) for whenever you log in, affecting only you.  You can
also do someting similar on a global (but gnome-specific) level by setting
the startup app in global gconf settings.

A more traditional / "unixy" method is to put the command in your .xsession
or .xinitrc file (probably want to pay attention whether you need to background
it wiht "&" in those files).  This can also be done globally, but it's
very dependant on the distro's X server implementation and the login
system you use (gdm, kdm, etc).  For example to make it global for all
users logging in to a graphical environment on an ubuntu lucid system
you might want to look in /etc/X11/Xsession.d/ or  /etc/gdm/*/
