gnome-shell-extensions-places-menu-3.0.1-3.03660fgit.fc15.noarch
gnome-shell-extensions-common-3.0.1-3.03660fgit.fc15.noarch

If you dont want the hassle of downloading and installing the fixed packages then just do below and restart gnome-shell or computer.

su - sed -i 's/3.0.1/3.0.2/g' /usr/share/gnome-shell/extensions/*/*.json

Or, if you do not what to have to change the version number until 3.2 for global extensions


su - sed -i 's/3.0.1/3.0/g' /usr/share/gnome-shell/extensions/*/*.json

It can't work, because these extensions are for gnome 3.1.92 and today there was gnome 3.2 update.
But any extension doesn't work for me since I've upgraded to Fedora16. Which is strange isn't it?

I had a couple of the extensions that didn't work for me as well.

A few weeks ago, I installed the one that removes the accessibility icon thing, and it crashed gnome-shell. Haven't tried it since the latest gnome updates, though.

But as lipisak stated, once you update to gnome 3.2, it's going to break just about every extension unless you do as fpmurphy suggested up there, but replacing 3.0 with 3.2.

Just replacing the version number in the extension json files should work for most of them. There may be a few that need some actual coding changes due to the newer version, but shouldn't be many of them.

The updates in testing right now fix this issue... there is no need to edit (sed) any json files.

You can get most themes and extensions working again by running these 2 commands:



yum update gnome-shell-extension-* --enablerepo=updates-testing


and then



yum update gnome-shell-theme-* --enablerepo=updates-testing


Once updates are installed restart gnome-shell (alt+f2 then r).


Versions installed:


[user@myhost ~]$ rpm -qa |grep -e gnome-shell-theme -e gnome-shell-extension |sort
gnome-shell-extension-common-3.2.0-1.fc16.noarch
gnome-shell-extension-places-menu-3.2.0-1.fc16.noarch
gnome-shell-extension-presentation-mode-0-0.2.gitc3ce6b2.fc16.noarch
gnome-shell-extension-remove-accessibility-icon-20110603-1.fc16.noarch
gnome-shell-extension-user-theme-3.2.0-1.fc16.noarch
gnome-shell-extension-windowsNavigator-3.2.0-1.fc16.noarch
gnome-shell-extension-workspacesmenu-0-1.fc16.noarch
gnome-shell-theme-atolm-3.2-1.fc16.noarch
gnome-shell-theme-dark-glass-1.0-1.fc16.noarch
gnome-shell-theme-gaia-1.0-1.fc16.noarch
gnome-shell-theme-orta-1.0-1.fc16.noarch
gnome-shell-theme-smooth-inset-3.2-1.fc16.noarch



Note that the following extensions are still not updated even in testing and still are not working:



gnome-shell-extension-presentation-mode-0-0.2.gitc3ce6b2.fc16.noarch
gnome-shell-extension-remove-accessibility-icon-20110603-1.fc16.noarch
gnome-shell-extension-workspacesmenu-0-1.fc16.noarch

I have GNOME 3.2 and installed few 3.2 compatible extensions, they load without error but they are disabled when I look in extensions tab via LookingGlass (lg) tool.

How do I enable them?

User themes are not turned on by default in Gnome, when in Gnome tweak tool you have to enable "User Theme Extensions". I believe that item is on the "Shell Extensions" settings page.


[Edit]
Don't forget to restart gnome shell (alt+f2, then r, then enter)

A new version of gnome-shell-extension-tool (not yet in repos) has support for enabling and disabling 3.2 Shell extensions. That version is available is available at http://fpmurphy.com/gnome-shell-extensions.

For example to enable a noa11y@example.com extension


gnome-shell-extension-tool -e noa11y@example.com

To disable a previously enabled extension


gnome-shell-extension-tool -d noa11y@example.com

I have enhanced that version of g-s-e-t in a number of ways including -D to disable all extensions at once. That version (gset) is also available the website.

the remove accessability icon extension isn't working at all for me. It doesn't show up in gnome tweak tool until I change the version number to gnome 3.2, and when I do that I get "error loading extension".

I also tried manually installing the noa11y and noa11y-git extensions and they don't work in f16 either...

Also the alternate status menu extension crashes the gnome session every time if you don't have a user icon set. These issues really need to be fixed before release...

The noa11y Shell extension in the F16 repositories is for GNOME 3.0. Not my fault! Somebody else packaged it for Fedora. Blame Fedora 16 QA for not noticing the problem.

Download noa11y from http://fpmurphy.com/gnome-shell-extensions and it will work for you.

Not yet. There is a major roadblock in the changes the developers made to the Activities button code in GNOME 3.2. My time is crazy at the moment - in fact, totally crazy until 3rd week in December - but I am poking away at the extension.

But to tease you - download and try the rhsmenu extension on my website. To keep it simple disable all your other extensions first.

GS initially pitched a fit about it, but a summary logout and login cured most of its bad attitude. <..:p..>

Well, in fact, this extension doesn't work correctly. Now I have two accessability icons :confused:

(I removed the other extension installed from Fedora repos previously)

I tried downloading it from there and it wasn't working, as skytux posted. For me it removed my places menu but not my accessibility icon, and at one point I did get two accessibility icons like skytux posted. :(. It worked fine for me in ubuntu 11.10. I did make sure to remove the fedora extension too.

I'll try it again when I get home from work, but I definitely wasn't able to get it working earlier. F16 64 bit with all updates.

Screenshot of extension not working, I downloaded it from the link you posted:

Its removing my places menu instead of the accesibility icon. These two extensions worked together fine in ubuntu 11.10 with gnome 3.2.

Now it works if you disable gnome-shell-extension-places-menu (see my screenshot):

..You aren't using the noa11y extension lol. My problem is: The extension to remove the accasibility icon in the fedora repos plain isn't compatible with gnome 3.2, and the gnome 3.2 compatible "noa11y" extension is conflicting with the places menu extension. noa11y works if I disable places menu, but when enabled its hiding the places menu instead of the accesibility menu. The strange thing is I was using the same extensions together in gnome 3.2 just fine in ubuntu 11.10 :/
