I always configure installed gnome-shell extensions from dconf-editor, but after installing extensions from the official site i couldn't configure the installed extensions from the official site (i didn't found the them in dconf-editor under org >> gnome >> shell >> extensions).

so how to configure installed extensions from the official site ???


for now you can not do that.

the extensions from the official site which still in alpha, cannot be modified using dconf. (at least some of them).

but you can still modify them, by going to the extension.js and .css files in /home/username/.local/share/gnome-shell/extensions.

  • This doesn't seem to be working for me. I edited the css file of an extension I installed but saw no changes. – Costa May 27 '14 at 2:14

In Gnome 3 you can configure extension using this link: https://extensions.gnome.org/local/

You can turn them on and off and also do some advanced config on some extensions.

I use gnome-tweak-tool for this.

You can get it here:
Install via the software center
