    I would start first by manually removing the *@linuxmint.com folders from /usr/share/gnome-shell/extensions and restarting gnome-shell. Then download a fresh archive and install the extensions using sudo ./test (as an aside -- I've found that mc is a great file manager for working as root from the command line interface: zypper in mc)

    It just doesn't seem right that the person who first clued me in to the Linux Mint extensions is having trouble with the very feature that I'm enjoying on my system at this very moment. We MUST make this right!
    Still no luck. I wish there were an error log somewhere.

    Hmmmm. I don't know what to tell you. My system is a pretty standard OpenSUSE 12.1 with Gnome 3.2 and a few extra repositories (ie Packman, Subpixel Hinting, Mozilla...) I did a "fresh" install using the RC2 DVD and upgraded to the final release using zypper dup. There's nothing unusual about my set up that I can think of.

    Is it possible for you to start fresh by reinstalling OpenSUSE 12.1? Other than that, I really don't know what else to try. The Mint Menu *SHOULD* be working "out-of-the-box," but obviously that isn't happening for some reason.

    I downloaded http://www.fpmurphy.com/gnome-shell-...enu-1.0.tar.gz, unpacked it, then created a zipfile from it, and installed that using gnome-tweak-tool. Now I have a nice Mint menu on the left. A right hand side menu is also available as well as noa11y from GNOME Shell Extensions

    E
    dit: this is how I did one:

    mkdir ~/temp
    cd ~/temp
    wget http://www.fpmurphy.com/gnome-shell-...enu-1.0.tar.gz
    tar -xvf lhsmenu-1.0.tar.gz
    zip lhsmenu.zip lhsmenu@fpmurphy.com/*

    Then I ran gnome-tweak-tool, Shell extensions - install - select zip file, logout login and voila, Robert est ton oncle.

    The zip file can be installed from tweak tool? I did an upgrade from 11.4 and some things are a bit screwy.

    Still no dice. This wouldn't be the first bug i've found from upgrading from 11.4. Either i'll have to do a fresh install or magically figure out the problem.

    What i really need to do is find the config directory and just trash it O.o

    Umm... sorry for the multi-post. I just trashed some old config files and they were replaced after restart. So, this is what 12.1 is supposed to look like... wow. Apparently the upgrade route is kind of a joke!

    Unfortunately the mint menu still doesn't work.

    I rather suspected something like this. The changes from 11.4 to 12.1 were pretty major, making an in place upgrade dicey. A clean reinstall may be a pain, but I think you'll find the effort to be worth it.

    There were a lot of bizarre problems with the upgrade route that I was slowly fixing.

    I did a clean install and it's working fine now, but **** was the installer buggy.

    Brilliant! I must have been reading in a hurry when I first read your post and completely missed this.

    These user configurable settings really need to be under "System Settings" in the user's menu (the menu in the top-right with the user's name). Even better, integrate gnome-session-properties with the gnome-tweak tool. Hopefully, as GTK3/gnome-shell matures, these things will be handled. I'm all for having a user interface that is as simple and clean as possible. Exposing too many configuration options to end-users right up front DOES confuse and frustrate the less technically inclined user (I know this from experience). In other words, they should not have to browse through a myriad of "geek-speak" setting controls just to change their wallpaper. But the advanced user settings need to be more easily discoverable to those that want/need them and in a location that makes sense.
