    4 - Check the box stating Make This The Primary Display For The X Screen

    5 - Click Apply

    6 - Click Save To X Configuration File & press Quit

    You have now set the login screen to appear on your desired monitor, this will be your main monitor, to change it, just follow the instructions again but this time choosing the other monitor.
    Tested this with Ubuntu 12.10 with no luck, login screen still appears on the wrong monitor...

    If a post is older than a year or so and hasn't had a new reply in that time, instead of replying to it, create a new thread. In the software world, a lot can change in a very short time, and doing things this way makes it more likely that you will find the best information. You may link to the original discussion in the new thread if you think it may be helpful.
