No, I don't think that is what I mean (not sure though). I mean when I
use e.g. GDM, the login screen shows up only in one head, in my case the
projector. I would like to swap the heads so that my LCD is the primary
screen and shows the login screen.

I don't use Xinerama, as I like to have two independent screens.

This is my ServerLayout:

Section "ServerLayout"
	Identifier	"Dual"
	Screen		"Projector_Screen" Below "LCD_Screen"
	Screen		"LCD_Screen" 0 0
	InputDevice	"Generic_Keyboard"
	InputDevice	"Configured_Mouse"
