May someone tell me the name of this Login manager ?

Which Login Manager is this ?

Additionally I would like to know :

  1. How the background image has been added?

  2. How to install this (with the apt-get command) ?

  3. Will this work with cinnamon DE ?

  4. Is it resource intensive ? How much RAM and disk space it eats up ?

Note : Cinnamon is the only DE I am currently having, which has been installed upon ubuntu minimal having LAMP stack.

This is MDM, Login manager of Linux Mint. You can install it from Mint's repository.

Here is the ppa:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nilarimogard/webupd8
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install mdm mint-mdm-themes

This will install MDM and themes, you'll be prompted to select the default Login manager upon installation so choose MDM.

This will work regardless of your desktop environment, MDM is a fork of GDM so I believe this will not hog up the system resources. I personally use LightDM on my Ubuntu 12.10.

Login window is the program shipped along to modify the settings of MDM, you can customize pretty much everything with Login Manager.

And for more themes and customization head over to gnome-look
