i am using ubuntu 18.04 when trying install extension workspace to dock it does install extension from http://extensions.gnome.org/ for shell version 3.26 (older in case of ubuntu 18.04 it is 3.28)and extension does not list shell version 3.28. Is there any other way to install it through zip file or something because

  • Have you actually tried installing it from extensions.gnome.org? Many times an extension which is not officially supported for newer GNOME shell version, installs and works fine.

you should try

apt install gnome-shell-extension-workspaces-to-dock

or install grom github

wget https://github.com/passingthru67/workspaces-to-dock/archive/master.zip -O /tmp/master.zip
unzip /tmp/master.zip -d /tmp/
#create extension folder if needed
mkdir '~/.local/share/gnome-shell/extensions/'
mv '/tmp/workspaces-to-dock-master/[email protected]' '~/.local/share/gnome-shell/extensions/[email protected]'
rm /tmp/master.zip
rm -rf /tmp/workspaces-to-dock-master/

then restart gnome-shell (Alt+F2, r, return)
