    Default GNOME Can't install shell extension

    The shell extension "Activities menu" wont install. Anyone know what's going on? I had a previous install where it did install.

    Hi
    Activities Menu? Or do you mean Activities Configurator or Application Menu?

    When you first went to extension.gnome.org did you allow the firefox integration?

    Yeah, application menu. Did allow firefox to use the extension.

    Hi
    They only things I can think of are 1) a typelib is missing to check this press alt+F2 and enter lg <press enter> to start up Looking Glass and then select extentiosn and in the list under 'Applications Menu' and press the Show Errors link, anything there? Press the esc key to exit Looking Glass or 2) the extension metadata.json is not up to date with the Tumbleweed Gnome-Shell release...

    I installed on Leap and see;
    Code:
     cat ~/.local/share/gnome-shell/extensions/apps-menu@gnome-shell-extensions.gcampax.github.com/metadata.json |grep -A2 shell-ver
      "shell-version": [
        "3.16"
      ],
    What do you get?

    The shell extension will not install, other extensions will though. I flip the on switch, (extensions.gnome.org), and it just flips back off. Not having this problem with other extensions

    (I don't have the file you asked me to cat)

    I think the problem might be the new 4.4.2-1-default kernel

    Hi
    OK, then the extension hasn't made it though for the Tumbleweed GS version more than likely. Just install the prebuilt rpm for them which is part of Tumbleweed -> gnome-shell-extensions-common.
