I absolutely agree with Jackson and Eero - the lockscreen graphic is really very awful.
Moreover some screensavers use it - I'm fleeing in panic from these ones.
Is it a simple picture file somewhere in the system directories what we could change?

What do You think about these (from my earlier post):

1. It's very embarassing Xubuntu has very few wallpapers by default. But it's a good opportunity to express the uniqueness. More Linux news portal (OMGUbuntu, Webupd8) talk about the prereleased wallpapers of new releases - it's no accident: Xubuntu can get more publicity this way. It could be put to tender for designers and photographers to create wallpapers (deviantart is a good place to do it) for Xubuntu, and place them in the final release based on the votes of the community.

2. There should be a unique main menu based on Application Finder (Xfce's menu is obsolete and boring) - look at the success of Mint menu; it's the 'trademark' of LinuxMint.

Xubuntu team could create a very beautiful plugin front-end for "xfrun4" that could become the new application menu or it could be merged together.  In this way the user no longer goes to a drop down but hits a hotkey like '<Control>Super_L' that pops open the 'xfrun4' drop down but it is attached to the panel.  The experience would be similar to the mintMenu or the "spotlight" application and file search dialog found on Mac OS.")

3. In the main menu: why the 'About' menuitem is 'About Xfce' and not 'About Xubuntu'? Why the Xubuntu tab is only the 3rd one and not the 1st? Why is there an Xfce and not a Xubuntu logo? (Only in a Xubuntu session of course...)

4. Use a unique window style (theme) with a much more wider window border: I hate it's very hard to resize a window (actually I can do it only with ALT+rightclick: it's not laptop friendly).

5. There could be a Conky with a stylish theme running by default.

Cheers, Imre
