Does the script require X? If so, rc.local is the wrong place to run 
it. You could modify the /etc/X11/prefdm to run it before loading 
the display manager is started. Now, if you want it to run when ever 
a user dos a GUI login, you could put it in /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d.


   Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons,
for thou art crunchy and taste good with Ketchup!

To unsubscribe: Mikkel Ellertson, Gordon Messmer provided the correct direction with detailed methods, I put my script into /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d directory and rename my script by adding .sh to script name, then it works now! Thanks for others who been helping too.
