Robert, did you plan to SRU some other fixes to trusty? That one seems like it should be easy to backport, can you have a look to it?

Hello Yang, or anyone else affected,

Accepted unity-greeter into trusty-proposed. The package will build now and be available at https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/unity-greeter/14.04.11-0ubuntu1 in a few hours, and then in the -proposed repository.

Please help us by testing this new package. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Your feedback will aid us getting this update out to other Ubuntu users.

If this package fixes the bug for you, please add a comment to this bug, mentioning the version of the package you tested, and change the tag from verification-needed to verification-done. If it does not fix the bug for you, please add a comment stating that, and change the tag to verification-failed. In either case, details of your testing will help us make a better decision.

Further information regarding the verification process can be found at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/QATeam/PerformingSRUVerification . Thank you in advance!

After enabling proposed and install unity-greeter from trusty-proposed, super+alt+s can open screen reader during login screen.

Add tag "verification-done"
