Ohh... Just right now I faced an issue related to gnome extension installation into my freshly installed Ubuntu 22.04.1 LTS. Actually this time I tried to install minimal installation. I don't know... because of that or any other reason, I could not install gnome extensions directly from the web browsers.
Anyways, after a few searches, I found manual installation steps, and ta-da! It works for me! Ya, definitely you have to log out and log in again to apply new changes or installations.
Step 1: Check whether
gnome-extensions is installed or not. If not then fire
sudo apt install gnome-shell-extensions
sudo apt install chrome-gnome-shell.
Step 2: Next download the extension from the official size. https://extensions.gnome.org/
Step 3: Install the extension with the command
gnome-extensions install -f <name of downloaded zip file>.zip
To turn extensions on and of, install the Extensions tool:
sudo apt install gnome-shell-extension-prefs
That's it!. Log out and log in again for changes. Now open
Extentions gnome app to enable and disable installed extensions. Enjoy!
