View Full Version : [ubuntu] Gnome Shell Extensions problem

Hi All

I am following this tutorial on installing a different gnome theme:

And I have followed it step by step, but when I try to install the gnome-shell-extensions I get this:

dan@dan-desktop:~$ sudo apt-get install gnome-shell-extensions
[sudo] password for dan:

The following packages have unmet dependencies.
gnome-shell-extensions : Depends: gnome-shell (>= 3.5) but 3.4.1-0ubuntu2 is to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

I am using Ubuntu 12.04 Stable release with Gnome 3.

It looks like your gnome shell extensions package is looking for Gnome 3.5, a development version of Gnome.

12.04.1 only has Gnome 3.4.2, so this package won't install.

Have you tried visiting https://extensions.gnome.org/ and installing the extensions from there? It's currently the easiest way.
