MDM is the default display manager for Linux Mint. It beautifies Ubuntu’s default boring Login Screen and make it easy to change themes.
To install MDM on Ubuntu 13.10, press Ctrl+Alt+T to open terminal, then follow the below steps:
1.) Add the stable ppa by running this command in terminal:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gwendal-lebihan-dev/cinnamon-stable
2.) Update the package lists:
sudo apt-get update
3.) Finally install the greeter:
sudo apt-get install mdm
You’ll be prompt to choose MDM as default display manager.
After that, you can download MDM themes from gnome-look.org and install them via MDM Preferences utility.
It appears that this will not work — there is already a package in Ubuntu 13.10 called mdm — the Middleman system.
The Middleman System (mdm) is a set of utilities that help you
parallelize your shell scripts. Simply label the commands to run in
parallel, and the System automatically exploits every parallelization
opportunity that arises at runtime. You can also specify dependency
between commands so that they run in an appropriate order.
Comes with an ncurses-based monitoring console. Compatible with xargs,
find, make, any shell, together, in a script or interactively.
Ubuntu 13.10 is not supported now by launchpad PPA.
Thanks man! I’ll report this bug in launchpad. As an alternative, use the deb from
this pageto install mdm display manager on Ubuntu 13.10.
