Issue solved with assist of gtsfer thanks http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=47&t=172196

Resolution: simply add below to you mdm.con under the [Greeter] heading. loco is /etc/mdm/ . Works 4 me in both Mint Mate 17 & LMDE 2014

See below section of mdm.con file
------------------
# NOTE: Lines that begin with "#" are considered comments.

# Have fun!

[daemon]

[security]

[xdmcp]

[gui]

[greeter]
Exclude=nobody,user1,user2

[chooser]

[debug]

# Note that to disable servers defined in the MDM System Defaults
