I see. Should not the web page have explained that instead
of assuming every noob knows this?
I installed it, and I find I am unable to place the
panels on the right and left sides of the screen, as
Mate allows me to.
But Mate will not show the network icon so I can bring
up the wireless or reconfigure either the wired or the wireless.
... sigh ...

I submitted a comment about this to Mate under feeback.
We'll see if they bother to respond.

Perhaps someone will see this thread and tell me how to
bring back the wifi icon on the Mate desktop.
