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 ...

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.

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! ...

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.

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 :)

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 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; /* ...

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?

Got the LibreOffice 3.5 Quickstarter's name from System Monitor and Google's Chrome is google-chrome. Add: StatusIconDispatcher.STANDARD_TRAY_ICON_IMPLEMENTATIONS['soffice'] = 'soffice'; StatusIconDispatcher.STANDARD_TRAY_ICON_IMPLEMENTATIONS['google-chrome'] = 'google-chrome'; to: .../gnome-shell/extensions/[email protected]/extension.js ...

Install dconf-tools, open dconf Editor in System Tools then click on com/canonical/indicator/power. In the right panel choose icon-policy "never"

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 ...

Using information from this page we can deduce that you need to change the line in the extension.js that says Main.panel.addToStatusArea([sometext],[othertext]) to Main.panel.addToStatusArea([sometext], [othertext], 1) After modifying the extension.js file, hit Alt+F2 and then put 'r' in the box and hit enter. I haven't found any central source to ...

I know this thread is a bit dated now, but I thought it worth mentioning that I had a similar problem to Raf, and in summary I think it has been solved by the following: Purge the testing repositories (ricotz and gnome3-team) Purge gnome-shell Purge gnome-shell-common (this was my biggest problem) Reinstall gnome-shell (after apt-get update) Credit ...

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: ...

You can use alacarte to create a Main menu entry. Just add gnome-shell-extension-prefs in the relevant command field and you should have it in the Main Menu.

Have you tried removing it manually? Find the folder in /usr/share/gnome-shell/extensions/ and delete it. Then, try to reinstall from extension.gnome.org

It's still Rhythmbox, but I suspect that you may have a different version of Rhythmbox on the other distros which is why you see different behavior. There has been some back and forthing over the behavior of Rhythmbox's close button. But currently, on Ubuntu 12.04, the Rhythmbox close button is simply hiding the player's shell. The player is still ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 [email protected] Then in this folder edit the file metadata.json Replace the contents of this ...

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.

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.

This Step by step tutorial to create extensions for gnome 3.4 may help: https://live.gnome.org/GnomeShell/Extensions/StepByStepTutorial

Not every theme is compatible with Gnome shell 3.4 , when you use compatible themes, this problem wont come. For example: install these themes - http://www.webupd8.org/2012/04/zukitwo-zukini-holo-theme-packs-updated.html . They work fine.

This is not the FIX soution for this . u must try restarting shell to do following do this: Alt+F2 type 'r' and press return Even if the alt+f2 dialog doesn't show, it will still take your command and run it. this will help u restarting shell . may be this would help

I asked this question of the gnome mailing list - turns out that the meta window properties are all read-only, so I can't (currently) set the above/on all workspaces options using mutter. However, I can use a library wnck to achieve this. Whilst mutter is still preferred, this may be the only way for now. Luckily wnck has gobject introspection, so this was ...
