[Bug 1393846] Re: Screen Lock shows wrong wallpaper


Hey there,
I wanted to spend some time on this bug again. I think I can also add some more information here.  

I am now  under the impression that the wallpaper stays the way I want it to be, as far as unity-greeter is concerned.
However(!!), my screen seems to suffer from something like a double lock of the screen, meaning after some seconds the xfce-greeter kicks in and locks the screen again(I assume that because I see the xubuntu background again and the screen lock looks a bit different) That probably  leads to this unusual bug: https://bugs.launchpad.net/unity-greeter/+bug/1393843

I know that my expression of the things going on on my machine might be
inaccurate. But I hope everyone gets at least the idea of what I mean.

  Screen Lock shows wrong wallpaper

Status in lightdm package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:

  after locking my screen the login screen displays the standard XFCE-
  Backgroung wallpaper. However, I am not using XFCE and I expect it to
  display either the standard wallpaper for the login screen or my
  personal wallpaper to be displayed.

  This is only one bug of a series of bugs concerning the screen lock.
  They are probably all related. I will provide the links to the bug
  reports later, until then you can find them in my personal profile.
