I am on Linux Mint 13. I enabled backport repos and updated to Cinnamon 1.6 and Nemo. Two things were broken after the update. I searched here and found how to fix the missing window titles and big tray icons, but after the update and rebooting, my MDM login screen supposedly cannot be found and default to the ugly default login screen. I was using a GDM theme named Mint and had renamed the gdm to mdm files appropriately. Since updating, the files for the theme are still in /usr/share/themes, but I am unable to choose the theme from the login screen app in Cinnamon. Trying to install a new MDM theme just tells me the theme package is not a valid .tar or .tar.gz when it is. Any ideas how to fix this?
Well, since you haven't gotten a response, I'll give it a shot. I was having this problem using the Tobacco Sky GDM Login theme in Linux Mint 13 MATE Desktop. I had tweaked it to run with MDM. After an update (? backport sources added),the theme no longer worked. Tonight I downloaded the original, untweaked GDM Tobacco Sky theme and installed it. It installed without problems and I'm using it again. Hopefully for Cinnamon also, the solution is to install the unaltered theme.
