How to restore the new 14.04-lockscreen

I’m using Ubuntu 14.04 but since some weeks I’m stuck with the old 13.10 lockscreen design for some reason.
I already tried compizconfig-settings-manager but it doesn’t offer me any option for changing the lockscreen design and even resetting Compiz and Unity with

dconf reset -f /org/compiz/

didn’t help.

Are there any other ways to get the new lockscreen back?
