GNOME Tweak Tool – Shell Theme Caution Mark

I have seen many questions about enabling a GNOME Shell theme using gnome-tweak-tool that go like this: I have the user-theme extension installed and turned on in Gnome Tweak Tool. I’ve unzipped the theme folder to /usr/share/themes and selected my gtk theme fine. However under Shell Theme, there’s still a “!” and it doesn’t allow me to do anything as far as selection. (It’s greyed out) The caution sign is sometimes referred to as an exclamation mark by users. The best workaround for this is to enable your theme from the command lien using gsettings as follows gsettings set

GNOME 3.2 Simple Popup Menu Example

GNOME 3.2 is about to be released. There are major changes in the way GNOME Shell extensions must to be written in order to work with this version of GNOME. Here is a simple GNOME 3.2 Shell extension which demonstrates a simple popup menu on the right hand side of the panel (top bar.) Once loaded, it can be enabled (displayed) or disabled (removed) without restarting the GNOME Shell. This is a major improvement over GNOME 3.0 and 3.1. // // Copyright (c) 2011 Finnbarr P. Murphy.
