Do you mean how to run something when xfce starts (without having to
start a terminal), or do you mean how to get terminals started from
xfce to run .profile? If the latter, .profile is run only if the shell
is run as a “login shell”. I believe there is an option in Terminal’s
preferences to make this happen.
If you mean the former, I believe you can do it through the “sessions
and startup” settings.
