Get A Global Menu In MATE 1.8 With TopMenu (PPA For Ubuntu And Linux Mint)

One of the most requested MATE features is the addition of a global menu applet. However, such an applet (called TopMenu) already exists, though it’s not available in any PPA and that prevents many Ubuntu / Linux Mint users from installing it.
To make it easier to install, I’ve packed TopMenu in a PPA for Ubuntu 14.04 (requires using Ubuntu MATE or upgrading to MATE 1.8 via PPA) and 14.10 as well as Linux Mint 17 and 17.1 (MATE edition, obviously).

How To Install RVM (Ruby Version Manager) In Ubuntu Via PPA

Ruby Version (enVironment) Manager (or simply RVM) is a tool that manages Ruby application environments and enables switching between them.

RVM has not been packaged for recent Ubuntu versions (it’s only available for Ubuntu 12.04, but it’s a very old RVM version) and to install or update it, you must run a script. To make things easier, WebUpd8 reader Rael G.C. has packaged RVM for Ubuntu and uploaded it to a PPA, for easy installation and of course, automatic updates.
