How to get a global menu in Linux Mint Mate

One of the least (in my opinion) popular features of the environment MATE is adding applet of Global menu applications. However, such an applet called TopMenu already exists. It is not yet in the official repositories, but there is a third party repository to install, created by Hungarian developer Alin Andrei, the Creator of the site http://www.webupd8.org/.



Sorry for the spelling and phonetic errors in the text.

Applet TopMenu is installed in environments MATE (version 1.8 and above) distributions: Linux Mint MATE 17, 17.1 and Ubuntu MATE 14.04/14.10.
It should be noted that in contrast to the Unity AppMenu, TopMenu not hidden automatically and it is always visible when the application is in focus.
Here are a couple of screen shots with the applet TopMenu (Global menu) surrounded by a MATE 1.8:
