Depending on your Linux distribution, you should be able to include that line
(that is where I personally make the call for xbindkeys)
Also, there are file/s which are invoked once at the beginning of the KDE
session and there are front-end tools (depending on distribution), which
allow you to add them without changing text files and digging for clues as
to what gets called when.
I truly hope this helps,
