This package provides only the native host messaging connector that integrates with GNOME Shell and the corresponding extensions repository https://extensions.gnome.org

You also need to install the extension for your web browser. Find below URL for the extension/add-on for the supported browsers:

- Mozilla Firefox: https://goo.gl/qfvc6T

@jatone: In your case, adding "-DPYTHON_EXECUTABLE=/usr/bin/python" to cmake should problem solve this. Can you please test it and let me know?

jatone commented on 2017-11-15 13:57

this application incorrectly sets the executable python to be used in the chrome-gnome-shell script installed to /usr/bin/chrome-gnome-shell, and on my system resulting in extensions.gnome.org claiming 'an unexpected error occurred'

on my system its picking up my user's local miniconda python version and not the system version.

cat /usr/bin/chrome-gnome-shell | head
#!/home/user/miniconda3/bin/python

by changing it to
#!/usr/bin/python

the package begins to work again.

@brittyazel: Were those missing packages not covered by the array of dependencies of this package? If possible please try to list the packages you had to install or what was the error message, so I can check any possible missing package in the dependency list.

@rafaeiff I figured it out. I had a couple missing python packages that were causing the error. Running chrome from the command line let me see the errors quickly. I wasn't aware that chrome-gnome-shell used python, thus why I didn't think to look there before.

@brittyazel: I don't know what could be the cause or how to debug. Can you please file a bug report in the upstream requesting for support? (https://bugzilla.gnome.org/enter_bug.cgi?product=chrome-gnome-shell)

brittyazel commented on 2017-10-09 16:36

@rafaelff I have yes. Unless there's something I'm missing, I'm at a loss

brittyazel: have you tried rebuilding this package after having GNOME 3.26 installed? Rebuilding worked just fine for me.

brittyazel commented on 2017-10-06 16:29

Updating to 3.26 today, this seems to be broken. extensions.gnome.org says "Native host has exited." whenever I go to the page.

@michaudg: some more information on this issue would be nice for trying to solve. Anyway, please remember to set dependencies (in PKGBUILD) to Python2 as well, or you could have some missing deps in there.

michaudg commented on 2017-05-10 23:40

@ybon I had the "Unexpected error occurred" message too. I finally solved it by using Python 2 instead of Python 3. I modified the first line of /usr/bin/chrome-gnome-shell to #!/usr/bin/python2 and the Gnome Extensions page finally appeared.

The project documentation says Python 2.7 or Python 3.x. I don't know why it only works with Python 2.7 for me.
