chrome-gnome-shell was removed from the official repo just now, and became an orphaned package on AUR :(

'chrome-gnome-shell' is now part of the official repositories. Consider using it instead of this AUR package. ;-)

If you run into certificate problems, add env GIT_SSL_NO_VERIFY=true to the execution, e.g. env GIT_SSL_NO_VERIFY=true yaourt -S chrome-gnome-shell-git

The problem is due to a missing root certificate, be aware of the security implications and see for more details.

@jatone: In your case, adding "-DPYTHON_EXECUTABLE=/usr/bin/python" to cmake should problem solve this. Can you please test it and let me know?

jatone commented on 2017-11-15 13:57

this application incorrectly sets the executable python to be used in the chrome-gnome-shell script installed to /usr/bin/chrome-gnome-shell, and on my system resulting in claiming 'an unexpected error occurred'

on my system its picking up my user's local miniconda python version and not the system version.

cat /usr/bin/chrome-gnome-shell | head

by changing it to

the package begins to work again.

@brittyazel: Were those missing packages not covered by the array of dependencies of this package? If possible please try to list the packages you had to install or what was the error message, so I can check any possible missing package in the dependency list.

@rafaeiff I figured it out. I had a couple missing python packages that were causing the error. Running chrome from the command line let me see the errors quickly. I wasn't aware that chrome-gnome-shell used python, thus why I didn't think to look there before.

@brittyazel: I don't know what could be the cause or how to debug. Can you please file a bug report in the upstream requesting for support? (

brittyazel commented on 2017-10-09 16:36

@rafaelff I have yes. Unless there's something I'm missing, I'm at a loss

brittyazel: have you tried rebuilding this package after having GNOME 3.26 installed? Rebuilding worked just fine for me.
