I am not able to use
gsettings set to configure the GNOME shell extension called
Log Out Button. I had downloaded the extension's zip file from here. Thereafter, I extracted its directories and files to either
~/.local/share/gnome-shell/extensions/LogOutButton@kyle.aims.ac.za, enabled it, and the did Alt+F2 followed by r+Return to restart the GNOME shell.
The extension works, but it did not appear in the
Dconf Editor, nor could I use
gsetting set to make any changes to the extension. According to this answer, there should be a
org.gnome.shell.extensions.LogOutButton.gschema.xml file in
/usr/share/gnome-shell/extensions/LogOutButton@kyle.aims.ac.za/schema that has to be downloaded to
/usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas/ for compilation. However, the file
org.gnome.shell.extensions.LogOutButton.gschema.xml does not exist.
What should I do in such a circumstance? Why isn't there a standard directory and file layout for installing GNOME shell extensions?
