kdm configuration
 
In a dual head configuration, how does kdm know which monitor to place the
login screen, internal or external?

Can that be changed?

I think that KDM chooses screen 0 as default. I have a nvidia card and
running twinview and this is the related settings in my xorg.conf:

Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "DefaultLayout"
screen 0 "ScreenDualHead0" 0 0
Inputdevice "MSComfortCurveKeybord2000" "CoreKeyboard"
Inputdevice "MSWirelessLaserMouse5000" "CorePointer"
Inputdevice "AverMediaRemote" "SendCoreEvents"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
Identifier "ScreenDualHead0"
Device "NvidiaGeForce8500GT"
Monitor "SamsungSyncMaster957mb"
Defaultdepth 24
Option "NoLogo" "True"
Option "TwinView" "1"
Option "TwinViewXineramaInfoOrder" "CRT-0"
Option "metamodes" "CRT-0: 1280x1024_85 +1152+0,
CRT-1: 1152x864_75 @1152x1024 +0+0; CRT-0: 1152x864 +1152+0, CRT-1:
1152x864_75 +0+0; CRT-0: 1024x768 +1024+0, CRT-1: 1024x768 +0+0;
CRT-0: 800x600 +800+0, CRT-1: 800x600; CRT-0: 800x600 +0+0, CRT-1:
NULL; CRT-0: 640x480 +640+0, CRT-1: 640x480; CRT-0: 640x480 +0+0,
CRT-1: NULL"
#Option "TwinViewOrientation" "CRT-1 LeftOf CRT-0" #
If no offset is specified in metamodes
#Option "ConnectedMonitor" "CRT-0, CRT-1" # If
one monitor is of when booting or on a switch
#Option "ConnectedMonitor" "CRT-0, TV"

SubSection "Display"
Depth 24
EndSubSection
EndSection
