This package provides only the native host messaging connector that integrates with GNOME Shell and the corresponding extensions repository

You also need to install the extension for your web browser. Find below URL for the extension/add-on for the supported browsers:

@brittyazel: Please make sure you have GNOME Shell installed and running. It won't work if you running something else, like Metacity or Unity.

Weird, on one of my computers this works great, and works perfectly, but on another I get a message saying "no_gnome_shell"

@ferrvittorio: cmake is still in community repository, so it is probably in your system. Please review your /etc/pacman.conf for custom configs.

Hi, seems as I cannot find cmake in repo, somebody has same problem?

PKGBUILD updated. Thanks.

@Awesome_Donkey: please do not flag out-of-date a package when its version is not out-of-date, and do not use it to report issue. Maintainer already is always notified of new comments.

The build fails for me. The following changes fixed the problem:

- Add 'jq' to dependencies
- Add -DCMAKE_INSTALL_LIBDIR='/usr/lib' in build()

Here is an updated PKGBUILD:

@Mr_ResistOr: You can only use pacman to install local packages or from official repositories. Since chrome-gnome-shell-git is in AUR Unsupported, you will need to "Download Snapshot" and build locally with makepkg, or to use AUR helpers (yaourt, pacaur etc) to install packages directly from AUR.

E.g., see:

I'm a total noob and have just stared using arch. For some reason when I try to install this I get "Target not found". I'm using "chrome-gnome-shell-git" with "sudo pacman -S" because that's how I installed all the other packages.

Any help?

@aseemraj: This package package currently provides only the native connector, while the extension can be installed from Chrome Web Store. Have you tried to rebuild this package, in order to obtain the version 7 ?

EDIT: Oh, you tried to rebuild, sorry. Please try also closing the web browser and starting it again, and let me know.

aseemraj commented on 2016-09-13 08:37

I have the chrome extension installed. When I try to install a gnome extension, I get this message on the top: "You are using different versions of GNOME Shell integration extension (version 7) and native host connector (version 6.2)"

Any idea how can I update? yaourt -S chrome-gnome-shell-git doesn't seem to help and the extensions that I install don't appear in the tweak tool.
