  • Works. Keep in mind that you still need to install a native counterpart (for ubuntu and others) to work and for ubuntu 17.10 this component has not been updated, yielding apt update error

    E: The repository 'http://ppa.launchpad.net/ne0sight/chrome-gnome-shell/ubuntu artful Release' does not have a Release file.
    N: Updating from such a repository can't be done securely, and is therefore disabled by default.
    N: See apt-secure(8) manpage for repository creation and user configuration details.
    Hello. You should not use PPA anymore.
    Use chrome-gnome-shell package from Ubuntu universe repository.
  • 不错
  • Works quite nicely.
  • extension
  • Thank you for this extension!
  • Thank you!
    Absolutely necessary now that I've switched to ubuntu.
  • C'est vraiment une des meilleures extensions sous Firefox ! One of the best Firefox plugins !
  • nice
  • it just work.
  • Great concept and have previously had high success. Though recently my FF has been performing like crap and today finally set out to isolate it. High CPU usage even when idle one tab open to duckduckgo. Running Ubuntu 16.04 FF latest.

    First part (which I fixed)
    First problem:
    -> high CPU consumed by Firefox idle. Isolated down to this plugin. (plugin enabled = 20% CPU, plugin disabled = 0-1% CPU idle)

    Seems I was running an older version of the backend service, which was the root cause of this issue. (sorry didn't note which chrome-gnome-shell version was running previously).

    Second issue. (no fix)
    Any attempt to close firefox (File Quit, CTRL+Q, restart FF due to addon/extension change, etc.) results in a hang and crash. Firefox spins CPU for about 1 minute then crashes.

    It is a Firefox bug 1349874 [1] and explained in the wiki [2]. Please ask Mozilla to fix it.

  • a must-have ext for gnome users.

    tested on AOSC OS and works fine.
  • Works great, because I followed instructions.
  • The backend requirements (copr dnf repo and ineptly named chrome-gnome-shell) could be made more clear on extensions.gnome.org. Works fine once you waste 20 minutes trying to figure out all of the manual dependencies. Grumble grumble.
    You may not waste your time, but go ahead [1] and improve opensource [2] website.

  • This is a great addon for users on the GNOME Desktop Environment. It integrates seamlessly into the GNOME desktop, providing installation, upgradation and uninstallation of GNOME Shell Extensions

    Tested on Debian GNU/Linux
  • not sure how to reply, but that link you sent is for google chrome, not for firefox :(

    You do not have native connector installed.
    Please read documentation [1]

    [1] https://wiki.gnome.org/Projects/GnomeShellIntegrationForChrome/Installation

    This link for ALL supported browsers - Firefox, Chrome, Vivaldi and Opera
  • As said by mostly everybody, this addon requires a backend service, it does not work out of the box by just adding it to Firefox, and this is by design, so, for everyone which did not it yet, repeat with me:

    Read the addon instructions!
    Read the addon instructions!
    Read the addon instructions!

    Tested on Fedora 25 and works great.
  • Error: Attempt to postMessage on disconnected port
    Solution: Read the addon's description.

    > You MUST install native connector for this extension to work

    The package is called 'chrome-gnome-shell' but is needed for Firefox too. It seems to be a dependency for the addon to communicate with the gnome-shell.
  • Thanks, works fine.
  • unfortunately extension isn't working suddenly. Getting error: "Attempt to postMessage on disconnected port"

    OS Fedora 25 / Firefox 25

    You need to install distro package called "chrome-gnome-shell".

    Read addon description for instructions.
  • gnome shell integration can't work in my arch linux
    error massage :
    Attempt to postMessage on disconnected port

    Did you installed native connector? Look to documentation [1] for more info.
    If it will not work for you, then create new issue here [2] or here [3].

  • Unfortunately not working on both of my Ubuntu machines (both running Firefox 52 and Ubuntu 16.10).

    Error message:

    "Attempt to postMessage on disconnected port"

    I have chrome-gnome-shell installed as per the instructions.
    Follow this instructions [1] and post output.
    Preferably post output at [2].
