is there a way to customize the login screen for Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS. I want to move my login area of Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS from left side to the middle. After searching in the web i came across this tutorial for customizing lock screen in Ubuntu Trusty Tahr. I have installed the CompizConfig Settings Manager in my system but after that i am unable to find this section "go to Lockscreen and from the drop-down box choose LightDM"

what i did was

CCSB->Selected Desktop from category section -> selected Ubuntu Unity Plugin -> General Tab

But there is no option such as lockscreen available in my CCSB
