GNOME Shell Extensions - RPM for testing

Hi

I have been fiddling with GNOME Shell extensions from http://git.gnome.org/browse/gnome-shell-extensions for a few hours now and I have built a package that includes a few extensions that works well on my system. I have included four different extensions:

* alternate-tab - GNOME Shell by default groups windows from a single application together (so multiple instances of Firefox for example would get one icon which you then use alt+~ to move across) in alt+tab. This extension disables that

* alternative-status-menu - Makes "Power Off..." show in the user menu by default instead of having to press the alt key to show it.

* dock - Makes a dock always visible on the right side of the screen

* windowsNavigator - Allow keyboard selection of windows and workspaces in overlay mode. Press windows key or alt+f1 and press alt to show numbers over windows.

You need this update to GNOME Shell

I've these two working without any issue. I think I may do without the dock but it does work nicely.

I don't see any numbers when I press the windows key or alt+f1.

Re: GNOME Shell Extensions - RPM for testing

Hi

Open say 3 apps. After you press the windows key, press and hold the alt key. You will see the numbers. Press a number to focus on the corresponding window.

Re: GNOME Shell Extensions - RPM for testing

Ah, that is working. I think I misunderstood what it was supposed to do. I thought I'd see the numbers in the "dock" and my favorite apps would have numbers so I could launch them.

Thanks! These are great additions.

Ah ok. That's possible as a extension. It's just not the one I have provided however. h

Re: GNOME Shell Extensions - RPM for testing

So...how do you disable or configure an extension? I don't really like how the dock stays there no matter what. I'd like to either disable it or move it.

Re: GNOME Shell Extensions - RPM for testing

Hi

The whole point of the extension is to have a permanent dock. If you don't want one, remove it and you will get a dash that is shown only in the overlay. Afaik, no way to configure anything beyond installing or removing them unless you are willing to edit javascript.

I'd like to hope it won't stay like that forever, because then it would only target single-user machines and exclude multi-user machines. Installing and erasing RPM packages should not be the way to configure a desktop.

Hi

Talk to the people maintaining them upstream for your feedback. Not my call

Re: GNOME Shell Extensions - RPM for testing

I am trying to install these and am running into a road block, a catch 22....

On trying to install gnome-shell-extensions-3.0.0-1.6d56cfgit.fc16.src.rpm by clicking on the Download and letting package manager install I get this...

Backend will not install a src rpm file

Then when I try to install any, I obviously get this:

gnome-shell-extensions-alternate-tab-3.0.0-1.6d56cfgit.fc15.noarch requires gnome-shell-extensions-common = 3.0.0-1.6d56cfgit.fc15

So what is the secret to getting gnome-shell-extensions-3.0.0-1.6d56cfgit.fc16.src.rpm installed?

Thanks
