I am using the Luebeck template for a beamer presentation and am encountering some issues with customization.

  1. I would like to move the logo to the top right corner (in the headline) in order for it to be out of the way for the content of each frames and be visible.

  2. I would like to insert the date (short date) in the bottom left corner (in the footline), aligned left. I found a solution to insert the page number to the bottom right corner but I can not seem to be able to replicate it for the left part.

Bonus questions

  1. Could it be possible to add two different logo ; the first one in the top left corner, the second one in the top right corner?
  2. Is it possible to remove the headline (the contents) in the titlepage? Would it be a bad idea?

Expected

Had to remove image to be able to post those in the Edit section below.

Edit

The solution proposed by @samcarter works great except for a small offset on the top right corner image.

Indeed a small space is inserted before the image and it expands depending on the subsections of the active section.

  • Works great but I noticed a small quirk in regard to the top right image. It seems that its top position is affected by the subsections of the current section, thus being pushed to the bottom of the header and disappearing beneath the frame. Is there a way to prevent that? – Florian Sep 22 '16 at 13:57
  • @Florian maybe this can be repaired, can you edit your question and include an example? – user36296 Sep 22 '16 at 14:00
  • I added a section at the end of my post. Thank you for your help. – Florian Sep 22 '16 at 14:23
  • @Florian Can you test my edited answer? – user36296 Sep 22 '16 at 14:36
