here is an upstart script, just store it in /etc/init/myscript.conf and
be done:

--- snip ---

description: "running myscript"

start on (starting gdm
          or starting kdm
          or starting xdm
          or starting lxdm
          or starting lightdm)

end script
--- snap ---

this will fire your script only if the display manager emitted the
"starting" event .. for more details see [1]
