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?

To install 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

Note:
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?

  • It says E: Package 'fonts-open-sans' has no installation candidate E: Package 'fonts-raleway' has no installation candidate E: Package 'notify-osd-icons-elementary' has no installation candidate – user276752 Aug 16 '14 at 11:07
  • Does other software installed without any problem? – Nayana Priyankara Aug 16 '14 at 11:10
  • yes, the pantheon-greeter works, but it doesnt look like what elementary os has completely – user276752 Aug 16 '14 at 11:14
  • fonts-open-sans fonts-raleway are not available – user276752 Aug 16 '14 at 11:29
  • Add the stable repository. I think it will solve the problem sudo add-apt-repository ppa:elementary-os/stable && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install pantheon-greeter elementary-theme fonts-open-sans fonts-raleway elementary-icon-theme notify-osd-icons-elementary – Nayana Priyankara Aug 16 '14 at 11:31

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
