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:

Opera is not supported. See Installation for this and more info.

According to this commit, python-requests is no longer a dependency and should thus be removed from this package.

I'm trying to build & getting this error: CMake Error: The source directory "/home/dean/.cache/yay/chrome-gnome-shell-git/src/chrome-gnome-shell" does not appear to contain CMakeLists.txt. Specify --help for usage, or press the help button on the CMake GUI. ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build(). Aborting... -> error making: chrome-gnome-shell-git

There was a change in the project name and the build system which is causing a build failure for this package. Consider using chrome-gnome-shell if you need this working ASAP. I filed a few issues in the upstream project and I'm working on the new PKGBUILD already.

@gaelic: This package does not directly depend on libffi7. Several of its dependencies depend on libffi (which provides, but this could if you have one or more dependencies installed from unofficial repositories. pacman -Qi libffi7 should tell which package depends on it, so you can act if you want.

gaelic commented on 2021-11-09 09:14 (UTC)

to make this work i had to manually install libffi7.

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?

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 #!/home/user/miniconda3/bin/python by changing it to #!/usr/bin/python the package begins to work again.
