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:

@michaudg: some more information on this issue would be nice for trying to solve. Anyway, please remember to set dependencies (in PKGBUILD) to Python2 as well, or you could have some missing deps in there.

@ybon I had the "Unexpected error occurred" message too. I finally solved it by using Python 2 instead of Python 3. I modified the first line of /usr/bin/chrome-gnome-shell to #!/usr/bin/python2 and the Gnome Extensions page finally appeared.

The project documentation says Python 2.7 or Python 3.x. I don't know why it only works with Python 2.7 for me.

@ybon: I see. Can you please try adding a '-DPYTHON_EXECUTABLE=/usr/bin/python' to cmake in the PKGBUILD and let me know if the newly built package doesn't present this issue? I'll apply if it works.

I had the "Unexpected error occurred" message when browsing the website.
After digging a bit, I've seen that /usr/bin/chrome-gnome-shell was referencing python from one of my venvs instead of system python, not sure why (maybe because I ran the install while the venv was active?).

Anyway, I changed the python in the file (first line must look like #!/usr/bin/python), and now everything works.

@franziskus: Why do you say that? It is built against Python3, so I would expect it to depend on python-request.

franziskus commented on 2017-04-26 16:12

This package needs python2-requests as a dependency (not python-requests).

@easymodo: how did you manage to have a Windows-formatted /usr/bin/chrome-gnome-shell ?

easymodo commented on 2017-04-19 17:22

If you are getting "Native host exited" on gnome webpage, run this:

dos2unix /usr/bin/chrome-gnome-shell

@PSCHC: You need the 'make' package. Please ensure the 'base-devel' package group is installed, because AUR packages will assume you that is true. See:

"CMake Error: CMake was unable to find a build program corresponding to "Unix Makefiles". CMAKE_MAKE_PROGRAM is not set. You probably need to select a different build tool.
-- Configuring incomplete, errors occurred!"

Can someone help? ._.
