How can Budgie Window Shuffler be used in Mate?

There are articles that indicate that Budgie's Window Shuffler can work on Ubuntu MATE.

But I'm unable to find an applet to add to the MATE panel. Has anyone managed to use Budgie Window Shuffler on Ubuntu MATE 22.04?

Hi quick search seems to indicate it is available as a Snap.
Down near bottom of page:
https://github.com/UbuntuBudgie/budgie-extras
and here:

Don't know if it works have no snaps on my box.

You need to install the budgie debs from Ubuntu and they automatically upgrade the extras to a snap. Then you need to start budgie-extras-daemon and budgie-panel. Then it works! Thanks for the help!
