Do you mean *before* or *after* you log on to the computer?
What ID should the script run as?
What terminal emulator are you using?

To run as yourself after logging on call it from .bashrc (or .profile). I've not tested this but qterminal -e & should start running in a terminal (this assumes you have qterminal installed). Check the man page for whatever terminal emulator you have for other options. You might need nohup to keep it running after .bashrc has ended.

I've no idea how to get a script running in a window before you log on though. I don't think the GUI would be set up to show multiple windows then.
