mstone, here is the new PKGBUILD for the 3.16 gnome shell :

mstone commented on 2014-10-24 12:09

This should work with Gnome 3.14 now. The only "clock moving" extension that I know of.

I disowned the package since I am not using it anoymore. You can adopt and update it.

orlfman commented on 2014-02-11 23:13

can this be updated to version 0.7.4 to support gnome 3.10?

th0th commented on 2013-09-25 10:02

Thanks for notifying, updated.

ryenus commented on 2013-09-25 00:13

please update to 0.6.1



arriagga commented on 2012-11-24 18:09

it's working again,
I did install it from

th0th commented on 2012-06-12 19:34

@madchine did you reboot or relogin after installing the package?

Anonymous comment on 2012-06-12 16:23

How is this supposed to work? I don't see anything in tweak tool or on the extensions page....

th0th commented on 2012-05-25 07:53

Updated to v0.4.1.

bobjimbob commented on 2012-05-25 01:52

Can we get an update to 0.4.1?

arriagga commented on 2012-04-23 13:36

Working perfectly on Gnome3.4

messo8080 commented on 2012-04-18 06:29

I hope you are right. But i'll wait for gnome3.4 in extra repo.

davidovitch commented on 2012-04-14 16:07

Not working for me either. I am not sure what changed for the shell extensions, but it seems that frippery 0.4.0 should depend on GNOME 3.4, frippery 0.3.7 is for GNOME 3.2

messo8080 commented on 2012-04-11 11:47

Not working for me.
i dont see any gnome-shell extension like bottom-panel, power-menu in gnome-tweak to enable it.
I havent any problem with 0.3.7. I reinstall to this version for this time and waiting for other users.

th0th commented on 2012-04-10 23:45

I updated to 0.4.0, isn't it better?

bobjimbob commented on 2012-04-10 23:43

0.3.7 is out. Get it here

Anonymous comment on 2012-03-02 01:57

After to bring the RAM from 1 GB to 2 GB, the bottom panel works fine!! I supposed with only 1 GB, Gnome-Shell started with "difficulties"!

Anonymous comment on 2012-01-07 22:53

After the last update, the bottom panel extension doesn't work correctly anymore. I have to restart gnome shell (with alt F2 "r") then it's OK. Am I alone?

th0th commented on 2011-11-17 17:59

Updated to v0.3.2.

th0th commented on 2011-11-13 04:41

Updated to v0.3.1.

th0th commented on 2011-10-20 10:18

Updated to v0.3.0.

th0th commented on 2011-10-19 12:08

I've already updated the package :)

arriagga commented on 2011-10-19 11:58

I'm using the extensions from "" and it's working fine so far.

toketin commented on 2011-10-17 18:57

@th0th yes an extension allow me to add my favourite applications in the top, but i would like to add only a launcher in the panel

th0th commented on 2011-10-17 18:10

I'll update package to use this new files ASAP.

@toketin as far as i can remember one of these extensions should allow you to place your favorites (the applications) in top (i mean the default one) panel.

toketin commented on 2011-10-17 13:19

@th0th it works fine, but i'm searching a way to add only a launcher in the gnome-shell panel do you know how could i do? Thanks!

th0th commented on 2011-10-17 10:55

If someone can test the extensions on and report they are working, I can update package.

Nachoc commented on 2011-10-17 02:51

@toketin: Check this

th0th commented on 2011-10-12 16:44

I know but I can't understand why. Waiting for an update on upstream.

toketin commented on 2011-10-12 11:36

Hi, it doesn't work under gnome 3.2, i can't see it in Gnome-tweak-tool

th0th commented on 2011-08-24 13:20

Updated to 0.2.5.

kagebe commented on 2011-08-19 10:27

OFICIAL change log 20110613 - 0.2.2
Attempt to fix a bug in the way the window list handles adding/removing
applications. I haven't been able to reproduce the problem myself so I've
relied on the reporter, Chris Hooper, to test this. Thanks, Chris!

Also the conflict with is gnome-shell-extension-weather-git
is fixed (I have both extensions installed)

arriagga commented on 2011-06-09 20:50

For now, there's not much I can do about the conflict with
the gnome-shell-extension-weather-git, so I added a conflict line.
(until it's fixed)

arriagga commented on 2011-06-09 20:49

To update to the last version just change those two vars in the PKGBUILD:


rickdesantis commented on 2011-06-05 19:16

The 0.2 version is out:
Could you please update the package?

Anonymous comment on 2011-05-31 07:28

A suggestion for the favourites in panel extension.

Can the extension test for the non-existence of a comment line in the .desktop files?

Currently, if a .desktop file does not have a comment line, the extension displays the app name with "null" below (in the icon tool tip).


messo8080 commented on 2011-05-30 11:50

Problem was caused by gnome-tweak-tool

messo8080 commented on 2011-05-30 11:34

Be carefully, i deactivate one of plugin in frippery - "move the clock" and gnome-shell crashed. I had to uninstal frippery plugin.

Anonymous comment on 2011-05-27 14:29

everything works now apparently.

arriagga commented on 2011-05-26 20:29

fowler, you can try by uninstalling all your extensions, then install, gnome-shell-system-monitor-applet-git, gnome-shell-frippery and all your extensions one by one (every time you install one, do: alt + f2 + r, so you can see where the problem comes from)

I have gnome-shell-system-monitor-applet-git, gnome-shell-frippery and some other extensions
as you can see here: ""

Anonymous comment on 2011-05-26 13:20

I just tried it again and it still crashes my shell with system-monitor-applet installed.

arriagga commented on 2011-05-26 11:40

Conflict fixed by paradoxxxzero.

arriagga commented on 2011-05-26 11:36

Conflict removed. (thanks to paradoxxxzero)

paradoxxxzero commented on 2011-05-26 10:01

I fixed the conflict, you can now remove it from PKGBUILD.
I was stupidly getting panel heigth with Main.panel.button.height (found this way on the net) which crashes the shell (handling errors is gnome super power...)

arriagga commented on 2011-05-26 02:07

arriagga commented on 2011-05-26 02:06

changelog (from me)
I added a conflict:
gnome-shell-system-monitor-applet-git (that extension and flippery crash each other)

changelog (from owner)
20110525 - 0.1.0

Use gnome-shell rather than gnone-panel-3.0 for translation of 'Applications'.
Add Shut Down menu extension.

Anonymous comment on 2011-05-25 15:30

I mentioned this in the gnome-shell-system-monitor-applet-git page too. Frippery conflicts with it. Like I said there I personally want a system monitor, so it would be great if this worked as well.

Anonymous comment on 2011-05-25 12:11

No ways.. like fowler. I rebuilt glib schemas but it keeps crashing.The only problem is the Application Menu extension cause i've deleted it and shell started as usual. You should advice users in the PKG adding an alert :)
Thanks for package by the way! I love other extensions provided ;)

Anonymous comment on 2011-05-24 14:43

this extension causes my shell to crash. I rebuilt the glib schemas as mentioned below... even though you said it was in the install file and it still didn't work. Am I missing anything?

arriagga commented on 2011-05-23 21:43

I added a install file, so it updates the glib schemas.

arriagga commented on 2011-05-23 20:06

lippol, I uninstalled it and then reinstalled it and it's working fine:
as you can see here "" it is ok.

have you rebuild your gnome glib schemas by:
cd /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas
sudo glib-compile-schemas . (there is a space and a dot at the end)

then alt + f2 + r

Anonymous comment on 2011-05-23 16:38

Applications menu extension gets Gnome-shell to crash!
Please remove it til it'll work!

arriagga commented on 2011-05-19 03:01
