Poll: Do you use MATE Menu as a package manager?

MATE Menu, forked from mintMenu, can install and remove packages. Do you use this feature?

  • Yes
  • No
  • Didn’t even know it could do this

I didn’t know it could do this, I just use the terminal, gdebi and synaptic and, on occassion, software manager.

MATE Menu as a package manager? I might well use it as one but I have no idea how to go about it.

Based on the feedback (here and on G+), I’ve stripped out the package manager features from MATE Menu. They will be gone in the next release.

Why did I do this? It makes MATE Menu more portable to other distros, improves the responsiveness and removes a feature that I really didn’t think need to be in an Application Menu/Launcher.
