The file in /usr/share/mdm/defaults.conf is readonly & according to the instructions shouldn't be modified. Simply adding the following lines to /etc/mdm/custom.conf worked on my system:

For everyone who has problem with the users not showing on MDM, check the file /usr/share/mdm/defaults.conf and do the following:

1) Uncomment the line that says "IncludeAll=false" (it should be the line 417)

2) Change that line from "IncludeAll=false" to "IncludeAll=true"

To prevent other users, beside the local ones, to appear on the system:

3) Uncomment the line that says "MinimalUID=100" (it should be on the line 400)

4) Change that line from "MinimalUID=100" to "MinimalUID=1000"

Does anybody know how to get the "switch user" button to show up on the lock screen login box?

Getting the same error on the new package.

Edit the PKGBUILD and change the first sha256sum to 570076df10cdfaa8b567eb51c1601f32c127ca16342e52c667b699a687acf86f to install

Has anyone found a way to get the "switch user" button to show up on the cinnamon lock screen using mdm? it works with lightdm, but with this mdm package it is non-existent...

Thank you @jamincollins, I have updated the PKGBUILD accordingly.
