[sf-lug] Adding Scripts to Bash

A while back I went to a LUG meeting and the fine folks helped me add a 
script to my terminal that activated once it opened.  Basically, I need 
to turn off my touchpad at startup. The script is this:

xinput set-int-prop "ETPS/2 Elantech Touchpad" "Device Enabled" 8 0

We couldn't get it to automatically deactivate without opening the 
terminal so I said, Whatever!  But I have changed my OS (mint) and I 
need to do it again.

Now I have to run a special .sh file if I want Skype to work correctly.  
The question is...

Where do I place skype.sh and how do I automate the execution once 
terminal is open.

Much thanks if you can walk me through this
