go to System-> Preferences -> Startup Applications and choose add then put the name you want to this app and in the line where command is written write:
gksu tpb-d

Didn't work for me.

I looked on Thinkwiki and upon reading decided to F2+alt. I keyed in /etc/tpbrc to look at the xorg file. I don't know if I should add something to it and save or not.

Any ideas?

You cann add
tpb -d to "/etc/rc.local" before the line "exit 0"

thanks. I added it but it doesn't run.
if I run sh /etc/rc.local after getting to my desktop it works. but I'm not sure why.
