@rafaelff It's issue on firefox-beta. Do you know why you think it could be?

pc00per: I'm unable to reproduce this error. Can you provide more information that could help me reproduce this error you're having?

@rafaelff I did a cleanbuild with yay and that worked, thank you everything is working noww.

@Scotty_Trees: clean the cache or simply remove the directory /home/scott/.cache/yay/chrome-gnome-shell/chrome-gnome-shell

As I understand it the script refers to just python in it's shebang line which is linked to python2 if both python2 and python3 are installed.

@maxkl This is demonstrably false. The package python which is python 3 owns the symlink /usr/bin/python. The python2 package only installs a binary accessible as python2. If you system had python linked to python2 then you either haven't updated it in half a decade or you tinkered with it yourself.

@yochananmarqos I see. Uninstalling python2 fixed the problem. As I understand it the script refers to just python in it's shebang line which is linked to python2 if both python2 and python3 are installed. For that reason the script was (incorrectly) executing under python2. Uninstalling python2 made it so that python is symlinked to python3. I don't know what the best way to fix this is

@maxki: I can't reproduce that. No Python 2 packages are required.

I get the message "An unexpected error occurred" on Running chrome-gnome-shell in the terminal, I see:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/chrome-gnome-shell", line 16, in <module>
    from gi.repository import GLib, Gio
ImportError: No module named gi.repository

I was able to resolve this by installing python2-gobject manually. It looks like the program still runs on Python 2. Maybe python2-gobject should be listed as a dependency instead of python-gobject? And equally, python2-requests, although I did not test that

@rafaelff How should you install (new) extensions? That app also points to, which needs this package.

rafaelff commented on 2021-06-12 13:45 (UTC)

This package was in official repositories, but was demoted to AUR package. I assume it happened because this software hasn't received a new release for some time. Still useful, though.

Just for the record, now there is an good alternative in GNOME Shell: the "Extensions" app that can be searched on activities overview's search box or by command-line gnome-extensions-app.

trashpanda commented on 2021-06-12 11:29 (UTC)

I don't wanna be "that guy", especially since I don't have the skills to take over as a maintainer, but this really should be in the official repositories. I guess folks should learn how to install from AUR/Source, but still. It's weird.

Weird this has been moved to AUR.. it's actually pretty important for GNOME extensions to sync.

Thanks! Here it was launched. A little bit awkward that it is not part of the other GNOME packages, probably not considered important because of gnome-shell-extensions. As usual there is that one special extension someone (me) wants ;)

@hoschi: The following reason isn't extremely descriptive, but it was removed from the official repositories (alongside many other packages) in a "Spring '21 cleanup".

hoschi commented on 2021-05-08 16:53 (UTC)

May I ask why the package was dropped from [extra]?
