I have XMonad installed from package manager and Ubuntu 12.10 with LightDM. How can I interpose the loading process to run my own script before xmonad is started? For example, I would like to setup wallpaper using feh. In all the manuals I have found so far, .xinitrc is being used for this purpose, but it doesn't work for LightDM.
