That would be quite a nice thing to integrate with the Mutiny layout in order to more closely emulate Unity for those oddballs who like Unity…:joy:

I have now tried this and, for people who already have the mate classic menu and panel, there seems to me to be little point in installing Vala panel and menu since the menu is essentially - at least visually - a clone of the classic mate menu. Additionally, when I installed it (on an openbox installation), I found there was no way in which the menu could be edited/customised. Which is okay if you have nothing better. But, pointless if you do.

On my openbox installation, I ended up installing the vastly superior “mate-panel”, which installed the classic mate menu automatically as well.
