Just upgraded to 12.04 from 11.10 and am working through updating/replacing Gnome-shell extensions. One particularly useful extension was: Gnome-shell extended places, which included shortcuts to Filezilla FTP sites, but also Virtualbox machines. Is it possible to install this in gnome-shell 3.4?


If I remember right there are at least two extensions for places.

I dont know if this extension will fullfill your needs but I quickly found this extension


and there was another similar extension more (i didnt found it in my quick serch)

  • Unfortunately, this one doesn't do Filezilla and Virtualbox as best as I can tell... – Kendor Aug 5 '12 at 13:08
  • I found the mentioned second "places" app. It seems to be much more powerfull than the first one. But it hasnt shortcuts for filezilla or virtual box either. Anyhow I think its worth to have a look at it. extensions.gnome.org/extension/299/all-in-one-places – gemue2010 Aug 8 '12 at 2:55
  • Actually using this one... – Kendor Aug 8 '12 at 19:04
