Thanks a lot!
This is what I needed on fresh install of 16.10:
sudo apt install build-essential libglib2.0-dev libgtk-3-dev libmate-menu-dev libmate-panel-applet-dev
The only issue I have with this build of Brisk Menu is that it doesn't have "Preferences" category and as result searching from menu for items in that category, "Mate Tweak" for example, doesn't come up with a result. Small potatoes
Still IMHO the most useful menu of the available options.
Now all is left to figure out how to customize clock font (size) and I will finally have a Desktop Environment that checks all the boxes I need. Makes me happy
