GNOME 3.36.1 megaupdate just landed in F32 updates-testing last night.
Would be awesome if people could test it and karma the update
also help fix up any issues that might come up.
F32 final freeze starts next Tuesday so we should try to get this to
stable before that.
in F32, if you install gnome-shell extension through a web browser or dnf
and then want to display its configuration (a wrench icon next to it at
https://extensions.gnome.org/local/ ), or if you want to configure some of
the pre-installed extensions like background-logo, nothing happens after
you click on the button. No configuration is displayed. You need to install
gnome-extensions-app , which fixes the configuration dialogs, and you
can finally display them (even from a web browser). Or you can install
gnome-tweaks, which pulls gnome-extensions-app as a dependency. In the
out-of-the-box state, though, you can't display configuration and it's not
This seems like a use case that was not considered, and it looks broken
from user PoV. I can see the following fixes:
a) Include the ability to show extension dialogs directly to gnome-shell
(that was the case in F31), and only distribute the application file in
gnome-extensions-app. It seems that all that needs to happen is to move
/usr/bin/gnome-shell-extension-prefs from gnome-extensions-app package to
b) Install gnome-extensions-app by default (not ideal, people can uninstall
it and it breaks the dialogs, that is obscure behavior)
c) Make chrome-gnome-shell require gnome-extensions-app. This will fix the
web browser use case. Note, chrome-gnome-shell is installed by default, so
this would make gnome-extensions-app also installed by default.
Only a) fixes all use cases, I believe. Because extensions themselves can
have a button to show their configuration, I believe. If I remove
gnome-extensions-app, which looks to be a *manager* for extensions, I
wouldn't expect it to break the ability to show extensions preferences. But
it will, unless a) is done.
Which of the options is preferable? Or some other option? I'll file a bug
according to your recommendation. It would be really great if you could fix
this before F32 Final release.
 I don't see "Extensions" app in gnome-software in a clean installation,
only in an upgraded one. Why, I don't know - but this brokenness is very
regular in gnome-software. A new user can't install it easily, though,
that's the point.
Hi everyone! In previous Fedora Workstation / GNOME, pressing the volume
up or down keys would cause a beep at the new level. This doesn't seem to
happen for me after an upgrade. I'm pretty sure it previously happened even
with "System Sounds" set to off, but in any case, I've now turned those on
and still get no beeps. (The buttons still work, and I get the visual
indicator, but no audible one.)
Is this an intentional change?
