    I think I can make out that 'additional gradient overlay' from your picture. Are you sating that the lock screen is truncating your wallpaper? If so, this does seem like a bug to me. Bug reports go here. And in fact a similar bug has been filed already; you might want to add to that report.

    Yea it's true, look at this issue for Cinnamon screensaver.
  • I love the uniform UI we have in our distros
    I think it's fixed now. Also, they're planning to harden the security model of the screensaver in the next major release of cinnamon, I think.

    In this case? The one people will use on Linux Mint.
