Just replace Gnome for Mate.
widget_class "*MatePanelApplet*GtkWidget"    style:highest "panel-buttons"

Or better, make it retro-compatible.

PPA in Airinux.

To add PPA in Airinux, Please use this step!

Step 1: Visit the PPA's overview page in Launchpad. Look for the heading that reads Adding this PPA to your system and click the Technical details about this PPA link.
Step 2: Use the Display sources.list entries drop-down box to select the version of Ubuntu you're using.
Step 3: You'll see that the text-box directly below reads something like this:
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/gwibber-daily/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/gwibber-daily/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main
Step 4: Open a terminal and type:
sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
This will open a text editor containing the list of archives that your system is currently using. Scroll to the bottom of the file and paste the lines you copied in the step above.
Save the file and exit the text editor.
Step 5: Back on the PPA's overview page, look for the Signing key heading. You'll see something like:
1024R/72D340A3 (What is this?)
Copy the portion after the slash but not including the help link; e.g. just 72D340A3 (no quotes).
Step 6: Now you need to add that key to your system so Ubuntu can verify the packages from the PPA. In your terminal, enter:
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 72D340A3
Replace 72D340A3 with whatever you copied in the step 5.
This will now pull down the PPA's key and add it to your system.
Important: This is not an endorsement of any of the software in PPAs. You must make sure you trust the PPA owner before installing their software.
Step 7: Now, as a one-off, you should tell your system to pull down the latest list of software from each archive it knows about, including the PPA you just added:
sudo apt-get update
