Thread: Adding Gnome 3 Shell Extensions

  1. #1

    Question Adding Gnome 3 Shell Extensions

    Hello,

    I have been trying to add Gnome Shell Extensions with no luck. Nothing I've tried has worked. When I try to build from source, I am told that I need to install gnome-common; but this will not install. Also, when I try to grab binaries, these will not install.

    Any help appreciated.

    Thanks, Grace

    Hello, welcome here.

    You better explain more exactly what you did. When you say "I have been trying ..." nobody can with any certainty know what you did.

    Question Re: Adding Gnome 3 Shell Extensions

    Update: I have gotten a little farther.

    I was successfully able to install gnome-common.

    I have gone to the following site to retrieve the tarball: https://extensions.gnome.org/

    I have then extracted the tarball to my home folder and executed the following:

    Code:
    cd gnome-shell-extensions-3.19.92
    ./autogen.sh
    make
    I have then checked with Gnome Tweak Tool to add the extensions; but none appear. Perhaps there are other steps necessary.

    Also, when I search Google for: "OpenSUSE Leap Add Gnome Shell Extenstions" nothing useful results.

    Perhaps, there is some correct way to add Gnome Shell Extenstions for Leap 42.1, that I cannot locate. If so, what are the normal and correct steps?

    Thanks, Grace

    Hi
    The place to look as well is https://extensions.gnome.org/ there is no need to build anything.... as long as you allow the gnome shell/firefox integration all should be good.

    Thanks for the reply.

    All I get there is a tarball; and gnome shell firefox integration is active. It was last update 10/25/2015 and is set to Always Activate. What do I do with the tarball, I guess is the question?

    Don't get me wrong; I am an experienced Ubuntu user. Normally I would extract and compile the tarball; but apparently some other steps are needed.

    Thanks

    Hi
    The something is broken for sure, extensions from the above link will just install, if your getting a tarball, well who knows...

    Create a test user and login as the test user, go to https://extensions.gnome.org/ and try and add an extension, say caps lock one.

    Does this work?

    There is no change. The caps lock one, just gives me a .zip file, not even a tarball. Also, the website is a BETA.

    Hi
    So what other configuration changes, have you been installing apps from source etc have been done on the system? Something is certainly borked systemwide
