If you can give a screenshot, it wil help identify the app. You can use imageshack or similar to make a url of your image

Thanks

My guess is onboard (as you associated this question with). Try:

sudo apt-get --purge remove onboard

And it shouldn't show. If it wants to remove anything except just the onboard package, let us know.

"Onboard" package purge went fine; after that, screen keyboard disappeared from GNOME lock screen.
Being just curious, I reinstalled onboard, and the screen keyboard reappeared on the GNOME lock screen; perhaps, there are some entries left in user configs of Onboard or GNOME Screensaver.

What is the output of:

dpkg -l | grep onboard

when the package is removed?

It outputs nothing.

Onboard has a fix for this now. The next release shouldn't show up in gnome-screensaver anymore if it isn't also running anywhere else in the user session. Uninstalling shouldn't be necessary anymore.

Thanks marmuta, that solved my question.
