This could be an odd permissions issue, but running ls -l seems to be fine. I installed multiple extensions manually to /usr/share/gnome-shell/extensions by moving them from my local extensions directory. However, these extensions no longer show up in Gnome Tweak Tool and are no longer applied.

Here is the output of ls -l /usr/share/gnome-shell/extensions

The extensions from gnome-shell-extensions.gcampax.github.com came installed with Ubuntu Gnome and are working normally. However, all of the other extensions do not show up in Tweak Tool at all. Any ideas?

There may also a schema directory. The schema from within the extension needs to be copied to that schema folder.

After that, there has to be trigger so that the tweak tool or the activities configurator discovers it. (The configurator is itself an extension). I have not discovered that trigger. It may actually be the file ~/.config/dconf/user
