Default executing commands for all users when X starts with KDM

I run two commands when X starts to get the multimedia keys on my keyboard to work, and I'd like these to be run for all users.

I'm using KDM so how should I go about making these commands run globally? Is there a skel file I can edit to be copied to each new users .xsessions file, or should I be editing a global .xsessions file?

You're probably better off editing the global one since these are system-wide (all users) achanges you want to do there.

If you are using kdm from KDE4, it looks like the Xsession file it executes sources /etc/xprofile, so simply adding your commands there might work.
