There is additional information to switch between some display managers here, I guess the command also would work between MDM and LightDM.

"HOW TO SWITCH BETWEEN GDM, LIGHTDM OR KDM IN UBUNTU [QUICK TIP]"

By the way, I think it is interesting that on one hand some Mint users want to replace MDM with LightDM, on the other hand some Ubuntu users want to replace LightDM with MDM.

"How can I replace LightDM with“MDM”"?

"INSTALL MINT DISPLAY MANAGER (MDM) IN UBUNTU 12.04"
