The same issue is present in today's daily, 2014-09-05. The TRY option doesn't boot, it freezes on a background screen.

The try issue is seperate - changing to vt1 you can see that loginctl show-seat seat0 gives you CanGraphical=no, possibly tied in with lp:1365336

This bug is a duplicate of one we've seen previously - I just can't find it at present

I'm not convinced that this is really a bug in xubuntu-default-settings, but maybe something in Ubiquity has changed. I remember we had similar troubles in previous cycles (the logic for setting the wallpaper had changed, iirc).
Maybe an ubiquity developer could give us some insight there?
