Compiz compositing capability will be replaced by Clutter, which will be integrated into the next generation of Metacity window manager, called Mutter. This means you won't need Compiz. Since Mutter is closely integrated, you cannot replace Mutter with Compiz. GNOME shell uses compositing and is integrated with Mutter, a compositing window manager ...

I solved this problem myself, and it was an extremely trivial solution: Open Gnome Tweak Tool. Click on the Extensions menu item, and move the User themes slider to On. Close Gnome Tweak Tool and open it again. You should now be able to choose a Shell theme in the Appearance menu.

No. They are only for gnome-shell. They are expecting a special API, are written in javascript, and in general are too different to be used on Unity. Note that the idea of writing most of the gnome-shell UI in javascript will make it very easy to write extensions that can hook near everywhere. Of course it will take a penalty in speed. It's quite similar to ...

It is the Window List plugin the same one used in Gnome Shell standard session which comes within gnome-shell-extensions package. It's full name: window-list@gnome-shell-extensions.gcampax.github.com Installed in: /usr/share/gnome-shell/extensions/ What it seems happening is .. the Gnome Classic session use it as a required plugin. So it does ignore ...

In order to install an Extension you are required to have the gnome-tweak-tool installed, this should be installed by default on most modern Ubuntu GNOME versions, however if it is not you can install it by running the following: sudo apt-get install gnome-tweak-tool With the gnome-tweak-tool come some pre-installed but not pre-enabled Extensions, you can ...

GNOME's official way of installing extensions is through https://extensions.gnome.org/ . I advise you to go there and check if your user theme extension is updated to the latest version. If not, you should be able to fix that through the same website.

This extension should work fine.

Documentation is lagging a bit, one potential source of information is Musings of an OS plumber, e.g. this post on updating GNOME Shell extensions to work with version 3.2 Depending on what information you want, you might try the gnome mailing list.

The reason I'm not happy with the demo code and tutorials is that they introduce a bunch of random imports and never explain what they are or how to use them. I'm constructing my own answer that others can add to, so that people can actually know what functions they can call, what they can import, etc. There is generated documentation for Gnome Shell, but ...

I had a similar problem myself and I tried resetting GNOME settings and it worked for me. After resetting GNOME settings, try logging out and back in (and to be safe, try rebooting as well) and now, you should hopefully be able to install the GNOME extensions. How do I reset GNOME to the defaults?

I guess I figured it out. You have to replace (after backuping, for safety) the following three folders with the original ones previously saved from the system you want to clone: ~/.local/share/gnome-shell/extensions ~/.local/share/gnome-shell/quicklaunch ~/.config/dconf Then logout and login. Let me know if it works, or if you find better ways! (...

I believe the confusion is that the plugin does not seem to be shipped as a plugin on ff addons. Instead, you find it in the repo for your distro. See the file lists below. Unfortunately, it also appears that not all the distros put it in the same "kind" of place. Ubuntu: http://packages.ubuntu.com/saucy/amd64/gnome-shell/filelist Fedora: http://rpmfind.net/...

To check the current panels: $ gsettings get org.gnome.gnome-panel.layout toplevel-id-list ['top-panel-0', 'bottom-panel-0'] Set the panel which you want to stay visible with Tried in Ubuntu 12.04: $ gsettings set org.gnome.gnome-panel.layout toplevel-id-list "['top-panel-0']" which will leave you with only the top-panel like you see in the snapshot ...

It is well described in the Gnome wiki, quoting: You can do this with the GSettings key, org.gnome.shell.enabled-extensions, or several tools that manipulate this GSettings key, such as GNOME Tweak Tool or a recent version of gnome-shell-extension-tool. If you invoke gnome-shell-extension-tool --help, you will see that it is capable of enabling and ...

I had the same problem. I found a fix in this link: http://gnome-shell.deviantart.com/journal/GNOME-3-4-And-Theme-Changes-290145428 Just edit the .css file of the theme you are using so it matches this values: .icon-grid { spacing: 36px; /* 36px */ -shell-grid-horizontal-item-size: 118px; /* 118px */ -shell-grid-vertical-item-size: 118px; /* ...

An enterprising developer has claimed to come up with just this solution - for me it does work with a small tweak described below. To get this to work with 11.10: Extract the source. Rename the folder from gnome-shell-extension-remove-bottom-bar to remove_bottom_bar@k2z.com Then in this folder edit the file metadata.json Replace the contents of this ...

I think that this is an issue with the metadata.json files, which stores the extension compatibility. As 3.3 version of Gnome is actually an unstable version, I think that the extensions will be update to support it after the extension mantainers will test them. That will happen probably after it will be officially released as a stable version and included ...

I've tried to run the version you have, but it didn't even ask me my email address, however I had a working version from https://github.com/vintitres/gnome-shell-google-calendar for a few months already. It has even added features like excluding calendars from importing.

Ok so I found the solution to my problem: First I added my google account to Online Accounts Then I followed the steps in this tutorial exactly: http://www.webupd8.org/2011/09/google-calendar-gnome-shell-integration.html Works perfect now :)

This file is a PLUGIN of firefox (NOT an extension) and therefore it's stored under /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libgnome-shell-browser-plugin.so you may check that in a fully functional (gnome!) firefox by entering this in the adressbar of firefox: about:plugins then scroll down to "Gnome Shell Integration", where you'll find it's path. If the file is ...

Gerd solved the problem in a comment: I solved it by myself. There must not be redundant entries in other nodes of the main menu. In my case this as been the case for the "Debian" node of the menu. If these entries are deleted, the symbols disappear also in the Application view. Cheers

The reason you are not seeing extensions available is that they are for Gnome Shell 3.6 most likely. This was an issue I had when I was running Gnome Shell 3.2 and they moved to the 3.4 version. The best suggestion is to update Gnome Shell with the Gnome 3 PPA In terminal: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gnome3-team/gnome3 sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get ...

You need to set up your Google account in Online Accounts (System Settings -> Online Accounts). Once you've done that, run the script again and you will see a list of Google Accounts with numbers to their left. At the prompt enter the number for the account you want to use, and voila - works perfectly for me.

I asked this on the gnome-shell mailing list -- it turns out that the extensions are loaded quite early on in the piece, before the a user's contacts have properly been loaded. Adding a 5-second delay to the code snippet that retrieves the contact list (to give the system a chance to load all the contacts) works a charm.

I am having the same problem, but this started only a few days ago. Also running the 64 bit install. Gnome-shell was installed using ricotz and gnome3-team ppa. Choice of browser (even epiphany-browser) makes no difference. Maybe this helps in closing in on the error? What does work is to go to the extension homepages, download them, and put them in the ....
