    Hi
    I should have tell this:
    I don't want to use a daemon, I need something that shows an splash at every login?!

    That's desktop environment specific. For GNOME, go to System -> Pref -> Startup Applications.

    You could always edit the file /etc/profile

    Are you sure you want to add your program system-wide, instead of just for the user?

    Thanks, But users are LDAP domain users, so there is no profile
