I'm using Mate I'd like to edit the other menus items beside just the Applications menu. Using dconf I can hide the Places or System menu, but I want to add/remove items that fall under Places/System. I believe these are purposefully set to read-only, is this correct?

Install or use the applet Main Menu and adjust to your heart's content. That's for applications and applets.

To edit the Places lists, you need to add or remove them as Bookmarks in your file manager.

Thanks for the answer but this is not at all what I'm looking for. I want the same level of control for these special menus as I do for the menu right beside it. It begs the question is the OS open or not?. The best hint I've seen so far is to look inside of /etc/xdb/menus.
