This question is related to installing script at bootup, but not to rc.local.

After the booting of the X environment. In addition to putting the the scripts to the autostart folder, i.e. in /root/.kde4/autostart for example, what are the other options?

Good idea to add inactive (#) tweaks to this. It is easier for end user to delete/destroy something than create good one (like entropy :) )
#update-mime-database /usr/share/mime
#fc-cache -f
#glib-compile-schemas /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas
#gio-querymodules /usr/$lib/gio/modules
#update-ca-certificates --fresh
these above for use more than one DE
#chown guest:guest /sys/class/backlight/nv_backlight/brightness - allow user change brightness (nvidia)
#echo 45 > /sys/class/backlight/nv_backlight/brightness - set brightness to 45% (nvidia)
#chown guest:guest /mnt/live/tmp = allow guest decide about saving changes
#mount -o loop /path...to.../libreoffice-4.xzm /mnt/libreoffice-4 - quicker booting if some modules (browsers etc.) are mounting instead of inserting to aufs and one module/changes for small files or links
