KDE login banner: GreetString left justification

I sadly have to use KDE and I need a really long login banner on the login screen. I'm able to insert the banner into kdmrc in the GreetString field using '\n' to fit it all, but the problem is that the text is centered so it still goes off the side of the screen. I'd really like for it to be left justified/aligned but I cannot figure out how to do this. I'm wondering if it's one of the parameters in GreetFont, but I can't find documentation.

If it's in some theme xml, I've yet to find it. Any ideas?

Update: I found oxygen.xml, which might be the theme, but I really don't know what I'm looking for inside it.
