Gnome Extensions Manual Installation

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.

Step 3: Install the extension with the command

gnome-extensions install -f <name of downloaded zip file>.zip

Step 4: 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!
