Thread: gnome extensions plugin

  1. #1

    Default gnome extensions plugin

    After the Firefox update I lost ability to install Gnome extensions.
    SO I thought I'd add Chrome plugin. Did what the WIki said and went through compiling the extension:

    https://wiki.gnome.org/Projects/Gnom...e/Installation

    But still extensions do not work. I get :

    Native host has exited.

    on the extensions page. In the terminal I see this error:

    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "/usr/bin/chrome-gnome-shell", line 20, in <module>
    import requests
    ImportError: No module named requests

    I have no clue why it is not working. What's worse the make does not have uninstall so I can't remove this broken plugin (and I have no clue where it spread the files). ANy suggesstions on the fix?

    Can confirm that something changed. See https://support.mozilla.org/t5/Probl...-no/ta-p/31069
    The "old" Gnome integration was apparently disabled, you need to go to https://extensions.gnome.org/ and click "Click here to install browser extension", then allow Firefox to install "Gnome shell integration".
    I have no idea how to remove the broken thing you tried to install, sorry.

    Hi
    Some users have built the chrome-gnome-shell plugin;
    https://software.opensuse.org/packag...me-gnome-shell

    Maybe you didn't compile the schemas?

    Look at the %files section on the spec file, should show you where things may have gone...

    Hi
    So is the gnome-shell-extension plugin installed (aboutlugins)? Is the gnome-shell-browser-plugin package installed.

    Hi
    So this is a multi-desktop environment, rather than a pure gnome?

    In firefox, backup you bookmarks and then delete ~/.mozilla directory, then restart firefox and go to https://extensions.gnome.org and there should be a pop to allow and another to remember...

    Well, Leap 42.2 Gnome as installed worked, but the Firefox update to version 52.0 changed the cards of the game... so you now need two pieces of SW for the Gnome extensions to work:

    1) the Gnome Shell Integration extension for Firefox (get it from the Firefox extension site or see post #2);
    2) the Chrome-gnome-shell plugin (see post #3): please note that the packages pointed to by Malcolm ask for Gnome 3.22, but choosing the "Break dependency..." option at install they install and work also with the 3.20 Gnome currently on Leap.

    BTW, the "Attempt to postMessage on disconnected port" error is due to package no. 2) missing.
    Everything OK here after that procedure.

    firefox is insane,
    and distributions that what to be stable should not ship firefox latest, ubuntu LTS, openSUSE Leap, ... just RedHat / CentOS seem to do it right.

    Just got a call form my father, 1200 km away, firefox broke google hangout plugin. great.
    while such stuff is acceptable for 'nerds' this is not acceptable for normal users that need a working system

    you never know what breaks after the next firefox update, Leap should ship esr, not doing so is a bug.

    What does FF have to do with LEAP???? It is a program not the OS


    For what it is worth FF seems fine here but then I run KDE
