I'm running Ubuntu 14.04, how can I replace the lockscreen with the one on Elementary Luna (Pantheon-Greeter). Thank You!!
Edit: Can anyone do it and confirm it works completely?

Pantheon Greeter on Ubuntu
14.04,Open terminal and run the commands:
Since libgranite3 (>= 0.2.0) missing in 14.04,so we need the following PPA as well.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:elementary-os/os-patches sudo add-apt-repository ppa:elementary-os/daily sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install pantheon-greeter
After installation remove ppa's:
sudo add-apt-repository -r ppa:elementary-os/os-patches sudo add-apt-repository -r ppa:elementary-os/stable sudo apt-get update
Note: Tested and working. refer here
For settings I found a similar link refer Can I replace the default login screen for the Pantheon Greeter?
Add elemantaryrepositary to ubuntu. It is just do not enough install Panthon greeter. Install all other software needed. Use below command to install them.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:elementary-os/daily && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install pantheon-greeter elementary-theme fonts-open-sans fonts-raleway elementary-icon-theme notify-osd-icons-elementary
open gedit as root, type gksu gedit /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf
Change the line greeter-session= to look like this greeter-session=pantheon-greeter
Refer this link-Can I replace the default login screen for the Pantheon Greeter?
I don't think you can get the greeter from Luna on to ubuntu 14.04 using that repository. It will point to the Trusty files, so what you'll get is the new pantheon-greeter being developed for elementary os Freya
