Installing Gnome Shell Extensions

With the dropping of NSAPI in chromium and other browsers, the “easy” way to install GNOME shell extensions is gone (bug report). What’s left is to either get a deb package if someone created that, or install “manually”.

mkdir ./local/share/gnome-shell/extensions/
cd ./local/share/gnome-shell/extensions/
git clone

Now hit Alt+F2, enter r and hit enter to restart GNOME shell and (re)load extensions.

Another useful tool is aptitude install gnome-tweak-tool.
