I’ve been facing some hurdles integrating the GNOME Shell extension with Google Chrome on my Ubuntu Budgie 22.04.03 system. The situation toggles based on whether the GNOME Shell extension is installed or not. Below is a detailed description of the problem and the steps I’ve followed in an attempt to resolve it:
Before installing the GNOME Shell extension, Chrome prompted to install it.
After installation, Chrome displays the message “Unable to locate GNOME Shell settings or version. Ensure it’s installed and running.”
Confirmed that chrome-gnome-shell is correctly installed.
Reinstalled chrome-gnome-shell using the command sudo apt-get install --reinstall chrome-gnome-shell.
Verified that chrome-gnome-shell is the latest available version.
Created the directory ~/.config/chrome-gnome-shell/ as suggested in some forum posts.
Followed the instructions on the GNOME Shell Integration installation page for Ubuntu, but to no avail.
Cleared the GNOME Shell cache with rm -rf ~/.cache/gnome-shell, but the problem persists.
Created a new user profile to see if the problem was related to my user profile, but the problem persists in the new profile as well.
Operating System: Ubuntu Budgie 22.04.03
Browser: Google Chrome (latest version)
Extension: GNOME Shell Integration
No related entries found in journalctl /usr/bin/gnome-shell.
No related error found with dmesg | grep gnome-shell.
I would be very grateful for any suggestions or assistance on how to possibly resolve this issue. It’s becoming quite frustrating, and I am open to further suggestions or troubleshooting steps.
Thank you so much in advance for your time and assistance.
