Of the ones in the /mate directory in our repos, you can probably only leave out mate-backgrounds, mate-common, mate-conf-editor, mate-doc-utils, mate-file-archiver, mate-file-manager-open-terminal, mate-document-viewer, mate-icon-theme, mate-netspeed and mate-sensors-applet. You'll be missing some functionality without these, but everything else has definitely got to be installed.
May you correct the dependencies?
The programs Atril (Evince), Engrampa (File-Roller), mate-conf-editor work well.
The following programs of mate-utils work well too (I have dismissed dependencies arbitrarily)
mate-disk-usage-analyzer (edit: works)
mate-screenshot (works, despite not recognizing other window managers, just like Xfce doesn't)
mate-system-log (works) Gui for viewing logfiles
I believe that it would be very good to split these packages, if possible.
Not everyone would want to install
- mate-dictionary (e.g. using Xfce4 Dictionary)
- mate-disk-usage-analyzer (Baobab)
- mate-search-tool (e.g. using Catfish or PManFM)
- MATE (looking at Baobab and the Log Viewer of MATE)
