@phw Thank you for your suggestion! I updated the PKGBUILD according to your suggestion, I hope I didn't missed anything.

Please use something like


Otherwise the downloaded file name is always the same for all versions, which fools some AUR helpers which are caching source files.

Why has this not been reviewed by the gnome shell extensions team yet? It's awesome...

v8 is now released and should allow installing to system directory using the current method. There's also an a new optional dependency on xdotool, for better remote input.

Later I may support building a proper system package (eg. system gschema/locale dir, dbus service, etc), which would require a pkgbuild using meson; I'll update here if that happens.

I've posted a zip with a provisional fix for this here:

There's probably a better way to fix this, but this should fix it in the mean time. Feedback welcome.

PKGBUILD should NEVER install anything in $HOME. Just install the extension manually for now.

@andyholmes, I'd appreciate the possibility for system wide installation, if that doesn't get too complicated. I'd like to be able keep all my extensions up to date with Arch tools. Regardless, thanks for the extension, and keep up the good work :)

I've reopened #12 as an issue for tracking this.

I'm investigating being able to build as a system app wrt with extension separated or as a local extension.

Probably "system" packages shouldn't be installed to a user dir, although I don't know much about arch.

I've updated the PKGBUILD so it installs in the local directory as suggested by the author. It seems to work for me:

It doesn't work using the PKGBUILD. I got this same issue:

Well, at least for me it doesn't...
