No, theming has no say on window positions. The question is kinda hard
to answer without knowing how far you are willing to go...
It is certainly possible to patch gdm to make the window appear
somewhere else. As things currently stand, the greeter insists on
You can use Alt+Left to move the window around at runtime (using the
standard metacity shortcut), but thats not very persistent.
It is also possible to replace metacity with a different wm in the login
session, that lets you override window positions.
gdm seems to support compiz instead of metacity. Would that give an
configuration option for the position?
I don't want to patch gdm, I was hoping it would be configurable like
in past days. How do all these million themes manage to reposition it?
