Re: gnome shell extensions issues since 3.2 release...

So I just switched from Fedora 15 to Arch so I could have Gnome 3.2 and stay on a rolling release and this is my first post on the forums.  I'm also experiencing the problem with the alternate-tab.  It's like it doesn't register that I'm still holding the Alt button so as soon as it switches to the next window on the list it selects it.  If I leave alt+tab pressed I can go through the list, but since it goes so fast it's impossible to actually choose the right window that way.  I hope this gets fixed soon as it's one of the biggest reasons I just switched from Fedora 15 to arch.  BTW, where would be the right place to file a bug for extensions? I can't find it anywhere on their git site.

Re: gnome shell extensions issues since 3.2 release...

Thanks @anarsoul it works big_smile Another arch user told me that he haven't got any problem with gnome 3.2 and the extensions, for example the alternative-status-menu works great for him, it's strange!

alternative-status-menu works on my PC nicely, but does not work on my laptop. Looks like there's some race condition - extension is loaded before status-menu, so extension can't change anything in menu, because it does not exist yet.

Re: gnome shell extensions issues since 3.2 release...

My both computers act like this infortunaly... How can we make alternative-status-menu to be loaded after status-menu in this case?


Pc: Intel core i7, 8Gb RAM, Archlinux 64bits, Gnome 3
Laptop 1: Intel Core2Duo, 4Gb RAM, Archlinux 64bits, Gnome 3
Laptop 2: Intel P4 HT, 512Mb RAM, Archlinux 32 bits, Gnome 3 too

Don't know, maybe sleep() somewhere will help.

Re: gnome shell extensions issues since 3.2 release...

I am uncertain if this matters, but I was having trouble with extensions while using a theme. I have switched back to Adwaita theme and my alternative-staus works as intended

Re: gnome shell extensions issues since 3.2 release...

Thanks @anarsoul, the race condition hint was very helpful.
I managed to get the alternative-status-menu extension working by changing the extension.js file, renaming the enable() function to _enable() and adding a new enable() function to call this renamed one with a timeout:

function enable() {
    imports.mainloop.timeout_add(5000, function() { _enable(); });
}

function _enable() {
    let statusMenu = Main.panel._statusArea.userMenu;
    statusMenu.menu.removeAll();
    createSubMenu.call(statusMenu);
    reset(statusMenu);
}

I needed to restart the gnome-shell (Alt-F2, r, Enter) to actually load the extension after enabling it. After that, all is fine and also works after re-logins.
The timeout parameter of 5000 (5 seconds that is) should be sufficient. If your machine takes longer to bring up your gnome desktop and you experience troubles, try tweaking this param upwards.

P.S.: credits to http://blog.fpmurphy.com/2011/04/gnome- … sions.html for timeout API snippet.

Re: gnome shell extensions issues since 3.2 release...

Hey Guys,

Has anybody tried deleting the extension folder of the alternative status menu in ~/.local/share/gnome-shell/extensions ??

That alone did it for me. It works like a charm now, reboot and all.

It seems like the updated extension got only installed in /usr/share and the gnome-shell still prioritizes ~/.local/...

Have fun,
ErZe

Great work! I only reinstalled the dock extension, even though your PKGBUILD makes the packages for all the currently available extensions (in Arch non-AUR). Did you make any changes to any of the other packages? If so, I may try them also. I now have a small black tab on the right hand side of my screen, about 1/8" wide by 1/2" or so tall. When I hover my mouse over it the dock opens up with a nice animation. Before I was seeing nothing, but discovered after reading some posts that, yes, if I clicked on certain spots where the dock should be showing then this app or that would open up, only I couldn't tell which app until it did open.

So now I think I have most of the extensions working and have found some shell and gtk themes that work as well. There are still some issues with some of the built-in window themes, i.e. if I try to use the Metabox theme that I was using before 3.2, then all I get are my desktop icons and the shell itself never starts up completely. Luckily, I have enabled letting Nautilus handle the desktop or I wouldn't have those icons for a fairly easy way to go back and revert to some theme that works through the tweak-tool.

Thanks for making this dock extension work.

alternative-status-menu was crashing my gnome-shell session, but I was without a profile picture. I added one and now alternative-status-menu works like a charm.

Re: gnome shell extensions issues since 3.2 release...

Thanks!!!! Both post 42 and post 59 work for me! I suppose that gnome-shell-extensions-* packages in extra have to be fixed or moved to AUR.

Re: gnome shell extensions issues since 3.2 release...

I've upgraded arch system and so also gnome-shell-extensions, i've seen that also adding

function enable() {
    imports.mainloop.timeout_add(5000, function() { _enable(); });
}

in extenson.js i can't prevent the crash of session. I've tried also to increase the seconds to 6000 or 8000 but nothing, gnome crashes after login

Re: gnome shell extensions issues since 3.2 release...

extensions have problem even after latest update. Interestingly the same extensions work absolutely fine in Ubuntu 11.10 (downloaded from webupd8 ppa reopository). I was wondering if this problem is specific to arch linux.

Re: gnome shell extensions issues since 3.2 release...

I really want a working version of noa11y. The git version works, but only if I disable the places menu extension. If I have them both enabled it removes my places menu and leaves the accessibility menu!

Re: gnome shell extensions issues since 3.2 release...

I'm seeing the same problem with extensions on my box this morning after updating. I'm using the ZukiTwo package from AUR (also updated this morning), but the "User Themes" exension is listed and enable on the "Shell Extensions" page of the Advanced Settings tool, but when I switch to the "Theme" page of that same tool, it tells me that the "Shell user-theme extension is not enabled" when I hover over the little orange warning triangle.

How to fix?

I have the same issue. The extension does seem to be working because I'm currently using the zukitwo shell theme. However, I cannot change it at this time.

Same problem, fortunately the gnome shell theme is 'stuck' in Zukitwo and not Adwaita...

Re: gnome shell extensions issues since 3.2 release...

The problem is with the pkg - gnome-shell-extension-user-theme-3.2.1-1.

Go to http://schlunix.org/archlinux/ and download - gnome-shell-extension-user-theme-3.2.0-1.

Restart the X server and login.  The extension will work again.
