And as the pull request was just merged, this extension can now be used on gnome-shell 3.22 without any hiccups.

Yes, the extension is not yet declared compatible with the newest gnome-shell version, but there is a pull request pending: As soon as it is merged, reinstalling this package will work. If meanwhile you cannot wait to try extensions in a future version, you may follow the directions I gave here:

Just a note that this package doesn't currently build as-is, the logic to detect the Gnome Shell version is wanting a version less than 3.21.

XZS commented on 2016-04-09 22:22

An extension compatible to current shell version should drop the upper version bound as it is likely to be compatible with coming updates. The lines from the PKGBUILD you mention were actually intended to do exactly this, but fail to do so. I already spotted the bug to blame and will fix it soon. In the same course, I will try to get things rolling towards 3.20 updates to all of my gnome-shell-extension packages about next week.

If you do not want to postpone an update, you can switch compatibility checks off with the -d flag, so "pacman -Syud" will update ignoring incompatibilities. Nonetheless, as the extension itself does not declare compatible with shell 3.20, it will not work. This is what the package dependencies actually reflect.

@XZS Please remove the if/else statement below in the PKGBUILD at lines 59-63, which sets the depends as gnome-shell<=[current version+1]. When gnome shell is upgraded, this package conflicts with the upgrade for this reason (and it is more than likely that the upstream will have fixed the extension to work with new versions of gnome shell). I think it is easier for the user to bear responsibility for making sure the extension they have installed from the AUR is compatible with the Arch official packages.

if [ "3.$max" != $(
gnome-shell --version | grep -Po '(?<=GNOME Shell 3\.)[[:digit:]]+'
) ]; then
depends+=("gnome-shell<3.$((${max%%.*} + 1))")

Works nicely in Gnome 3.16, thanks!

This temporary PKGBUILD uses the Gnome 3.10 branch, if anyone requires it:

My mistake I had MPRIS D-Bus Interface disabled in Banshee. Thanks for replying.

@donniezazen: Nobody will be able to troubleshoot your problem if you don't provide any detail. It's working perfectly fine on my 3 machines, did you enable it? If so, what does looking glass say about it? Alt+F2 and enter "lg", in the extension tab, click on show errors.
