just one abnormally, added some login windows from art.gnome.org & GDM ones from gnome-live
I can login to MATE, but for some reason, I am unable to login to cinnamon.
=> is there anything I can do to rectify this ?

steps were as follows ... having been able to login to both MATE & Cinnamon
a) from gnome-look.org I downloaded the following GDMs : leaf & Avio-GDM
b) followed 123 from forums to edit the *.desktop file rename from GDM to MDM
c) dragged the amended zipped file onto the open window of : login window preferences (on the local tab)
the theme was now accepted and useable.
now unable to login to cinnamon => looks like it is going in, the desktop flashes up for a second, then goes back to the login prompt
... even using the original 2 login themes, unable to login.
... removed the 2 I added, made no difference.
As I'm testing this for a couple of clients ... I decided to rebuild, and try again, same thing happened.
To be honest I'm not too worried about this, as for the moment, I shall be recommending the LMDE201204 with MATE to my clients
... but it looks as if it is not possible to use GDMs as indicated, and possible the GTK 2.* as mentioned in forums for themes.
happy to try anything ... as I'm running this on several test laptops / PCs.
