Bug Description


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.

  * Split out dconf schemas into separate package

  * Make sure we check if the Quicklist or Alt+F1 key nav is open (so we

    multipled Gdk scale factor Get monitor position based on absolute
