Hi @andyholmes, I have no downstream patches with the latest package: my PKGBUILD is basically downloading the latest stable zip then unzipping it inside /usr/share/gnome-shell/extensions/, like it does when downloading it from No build, whatsoever. ;)

@andyholmes I've just made for those who do not want to wait for a release. Any feedback from you or anyone else is welcome.

Hi, I know it's been a long time coming, but I've recently merged the rewrite into master so I thought I'd get in touch with all the packagers I can. Fairly "soon" I'll tag a release candidate at which point I'd like to do an informal freeze.

Now would be convenient time to request or submit any changes to the build system. Hopefully, we can achieve a system that works for all distributions without any downstream patches. The only addition I have planned is a translator's build target for the WebExtension, which shouldn't affect packaging. There is a new page in the Wiki called "Packaging" that may answer some questions:

@postblue Hm, interesting. I was using yay when the error occurred, but install succeeded with yaourt.

@vlatkoB I don't have the problem and cannot recreate it: Are you using a wrapper maybe?

Tried installing, but got an error at the end:

:: Running post-transaction hooks...

(1/1) Arming ConditionNeedsUpdate...

remote: Not Found

fatal: repository '' not found

URL seems fine, except the last slash. Any advice?

@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.
