But let's update MDM first: Enable the backport repository using Software Sources. Once you've updated MDM, you can use GDM 2 themes without renaming - MDM is a fork of GDM 2 so it's compatible with these themes.
Then you can go to gnome-look.org and download a theme with user list, then install it with MDM Preferences (Login Window).
And in fact many themes with user list are pre-installed in Mint 14

So that's what days were like. A bunch of tiny frustrations, and a bunch of tiny successes. But they added up. Even something which seems like a tiny, inconsequential frustration affects your mood. Your emotions don't seem to care about the magnitude of the event, only the quality.
And I started to learn that the days when I was happiest were the days with lots of small successes and few small frustrations.
The more you feel that you can control your environment, and that the things you do are actually working, the happier you are. When you find yourself frustrated, angry, and upset, it's probably because of something that happened that you could not control: even something small. The space bar on your keyboard is not working well. When you type, some of the words are stuck together. This gets frustrating, because you are pressing the space bar and nothing is happening. The key to your front door doesn't work very well. When you try to turn it, it sticks. Another tiny frustration. These things add up; these are the things that make us unhappy on a day-to-day basis. Even though they seem too petty to dwell on (I mean, there are people starving in Africa, for heaven's sake, I can't get upset about space bars), nonetheless they change our moods.

None was pre-selected like in the old versions so you could just hit enter and then type your password straight away.
