I put a revised version of the PKGBUILD with:

  • .install file removed

  • no gnome-shell version check

  • download again source page to get the version (so the pkgver gets updated correctly)

  • [EDIT] use convenience.js provided by upstream

@XZS hi! Same issue as usually happens when trying to build with the latest GNOME. Maybe you will remove the dependence on a specific gnome-shell release number so that there will never be such issues in the future?

resolving dependencies...
warning: cannot resolve "gnome-shell<3.31", a dependency of "gnome-shell-extension-activities-config"

@XZS thank you!

XZS commented on 2018-09-17 15:20 (UTC)

The package should now report to be compatible up to gnome-shell version 3.30 when built anew.

zfkerr commented on 2018-09-12 14:55 (UTC)

This package can not be installed because it requires gnome-shell 3.28 in the PKGBUILD dependencies . The developer of this extension has already officially supported gnome-shell 3.30. Fix it please. Thank you.

Can not be installed because it requires gnome-shell 3.27. The developer of this extension has already officially supported gnome-shell 3.28. Fix it please.

I agree, not working anymore (not visible in settings if installed). Using 3.26.2

Taijian commented on 2017-11-04 14:56 (UTC)

OK, for me even manual update does not work (via makepkg -si OR makepkg -s && pacman -U), giving this error message complaining about a gnome shell version mismatch: Fehler: Konnte den Vorgang nicht vorbereiten (Kann Abhängigkeiten nicht erfüllen) :: gnome-shell-extension-activities-config: benötigt gnome-shell<3.25

getzze commented on 2017-10-19 18:50 (UTC)

The .install file is not needed, pacman hooks recompile the schemas automatically

Hi! XZS I get this when trying update to this last version. gnome-shell-extension-activities-config package(s) failed to install. ensure package version does not mismatch between .SRCINFO and PKGBUILD ensure package name has a VCS suffix if this is a devel package COMMENT UPDATE: trying manual installation works well. I'm using pacaur helper. I think there is some bug in pacaur when try update this package. Thanks Dominik Fischer for your help!

XZS commented on 2016-11-03 12:20 (UTC)

As previously mentioned, this package updates automatically. So when pacaur shows this message, it means that a new version of activities configurator was released and I did not yet propagate the change to the package. As I use yaourt, I do not know whether pacaur has an option to silence this warning, but if it has, feel free to do so. For now, I updated the package and it should install without any hiccups.

@XZS, got the same error again when updating.

XZS commented on 2016-07-20 14:12 (UTC)

The PKGBUILD automatically installs the newest available version, even when the package is out of date here in the AUR. This is what most likely happened in your case, @ptkato. Thank you for the notice, I updated to the newest version just now.

ptkato commented on 2016-07-16 02:13 (UTC)

I'm having troubles trying to install with pacaur: :: Installing gnome-shell-extension-activities-config package(s)... :: gnome-shell-extension-activities-config package(s) failed to install. Check .SRCINFO for mismatching data with PKGBUILD. It seems that pkgver from .SRCINFO differs from PKGBUILD, the former is 44 and the latter 46.

@XZS Thanks for the fix.

XZS commented on 2015-01-29 13:03 (UTC)

The package should work just fine with these differing permissions. They are also fixed for now.

orschiro commented on 2015-01-21 07:29 (UTC)

I get the follow warning on installation: (1/1) installing gnome-shell-extension-activit... [######################] 100% warning: directory permissions differ on /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas/ filesystem: 755 package: 775 Can this safely be ignored?

XZS commented on 2014-11-04 01:13 (UTC)

Thanks for the note. For future version checksum updates should not be necessary. It now automatically determines and downloads the newest version from

vinadoros commented on 2014-11-03 14:13 (UTC)

Checksum has changed again (new checksum: 7965fe5d7e43742030406e472ed0b8c5).

XZS commented on 2014-10-07 00:56 (UTC)

The newest version now also supports gnome 3.14.

vinadoros commented on 2014-10-03 20:19 (UTC)

Checksum has changed on the shell extension (the extension has been updated recently). Can we get an update to the md5sum? I think the new one is: d1605ed2ab840312a153dd9eb66b0c74. Thanks.
