Bug Description

[Impact]

Unity lock screen password entry should have an activator arrow like unity-greeter.

[Test Case]

Using the Unity desktop shell, lock the screen using Super-L (or you favourite method). When the lockscreen is displayed, a little wedgie should be displayed at the right-hand end of the password entry field, and clicking on that wedgie should perform the authentication action.

[Regression Potential]

This is a cosmetic change to allow click-clicky mouse interaction to work just like hitting [Enter]. The biggest potential for regression is that the asset (artwork) does not get displayed or the mouse click does not work just like hitting Enter does.

[Other Info]

The Ubuntu 14.04 LTS SRU was cherry-picked from Ubuntu 14.10 whwere it has been in production use for some months without apparent regression.

  [ Michal Hruby ]
  * Split out dconf schemas into separate package

  [ Brandon Schaefer ]
  * Make sure we check if the Quicklist or Alt+F1 key nav is open (so we
    can close them) Bore checking if something as a WM grab. As we cant
    open the hud is in Quicklist or KeyNav anymore. (LP: #1353167)

  [ Stephen M. Webb ]
  * Changed log message on failure to open xpathselect library from an
    error to a warning. The xpathselect library is used for
    introspection during automated test runs. It is not an error for
    this library to be unavailable in normal successful operating
    conditions. (LP: #1345296)

  [ Andrea Azzarone ]
  * Add an arrow activator in the lockscreen. (LP: #1332509)
  * Allow a distinct pam config file for greeter and for lock-screen.
    (LP: #1305440)

  [ Marco Trevisan (Treviño) ]
  * Autopilot, Switcher: use correct right/left scroll buttons for
    next/prev mouse selection (LP: #1353383)
  * UScreen, PanelService: get monitor at position, ignoring pre-
    multipled Gdk scale factor Get monitor position based on absolute
    coordinates, ignoring the pre-multipled scaling factor that Gdk
    applies to all the monitor sizes. In this way we get the proper
    monitor index for absolute coordinates, independently from the
    scaling factor. (LP: #1351591)
  * ApplicationLauncherIcon: make sure we close the dash if DnD is
    accepted And we're about to focus the application window(s) (LP:
    #1350331)
