Contents of the folder ~/Desktop/Autostart will be executed on XFCE4 startup. Normally, it is 
sufficient to make some links pointing to the executables. In my case, I have korgac, torsmo, 
lineakd, skippy, devilspie and iconbox in there.
IIRC, you can even place a shell script there, if you need a more ambivalent handling.
