In the same way as the ToolRunner may be started independently of MeVisLab, MATE may be launched standalone via the Dock or by opening one of its supported file types via the Finder, e.g. a Module Definition .def file, as well.
To permanently add the MATE icon to the Dock, launch MATE from the File menu of MeVisLab or by selecting Show Text Editor from the Tools context menu of MeVisLab in the Dock. Then choose Keep in Dock from MATE's context menu (see Section 3.3.1, “Adding the ToolRunner to the Dock”).
