• Can't install menu bar (Applications, Places, System)


    I was pretty excited to try out the MATE environment because it’s what I run on my Ubuntu machine. However, it boots into some gawd-awful mint menu monstrosity and only has one panel. I can always install another panel, of course. But I tried to install the menu bar (Applications, Places, System) except it shows up as a white blob on the dark default panel.

    How do I get rid of that mint menu thing and get the standard Gnome 2-style menu to show up in the dark panel? Thanks.

  • I think I figured it out. It doesn’t work with the default theme that loads when you first start MATE after a fresh install. Not only that, but I couldn’t delete the mint menu. I had to wipe out the panel and build another one. But it works, At least for now.
