That shouldn't be too hard.

(Someone correct me if i'm wrong, my knowledge is old and non-Ubuntu, 
but i don't see why this would have changed.)
All scripts in /etc/rc.5/ will not be run until runlevel 5 is reached, 
which is typically the "graphical" run level.
The numbering in that folder determines the order in which the scripts 
are run, so typically your scripts would be numbered 999 or something 
like that, so that they are run last. Take a peek at some of the other 
scripts to see how they are built up.
