    There are hundreds more GNOME Shell extensions available through the Ubuntu/GNOME Software app (in Addons > Shell Extensions) than through Synaptic or apt.

    Sounds like you guys are thinking some where down the road to dump synaptic then.

    Re: Adding gnome extension in 17.10

    Greetings,
    The Gnome Software Center is nice, in fact much nicer than I thought it would be. I use synaptic to install some non channel apps like Kompozer as a for instance. The question with synaptic was how to get it to work in a wayland session, and it in fact works.

    This is a bit non conventional but seems to be the current work around until some things get fixed.
    Actually, once you have entered xhost +si:localuser:root
    Synaptic will open by clicking on it. At least on my system it does.

    alias root-fix='xhost +si:localuser:root'

    Ubuntu/GNOME Software is certainly improved, at least for apps & apparntly extensions. Still & maybe? forever useless for libraries & cli binaries.

    One current almost flaw can be seen by simple example

    Go to Add -Ons > Shell Extensions, it populates rather quickly.
    Then go 'back' > Hardware drivers > Open the Beignet description. From there 'back' > Shell Extensions. Now it takes about 15-20 sec to populate here.

    Re: Adding gnome extension in 17.10

    Speaking about Gnome-software/Ubuntu-software, i have purged these packages & dependencies because i have found them running in the background (at least sometimes) and fully using a cpu core (100%) without ending. The worst is they surely be never running as i only work with synaptic. Synaptic does not list (useless/not tested) third parties packages if you does not enter ppa(s); that is much more stable and secure.

    If you install the package "gnome-shell-extensions" it also installs some files that many extensions on the extensions.gnome website depend on!

    After doing this I could install any extension from the website.

    Please file a bug against ubuntu-meta. We may want to install some of those extra gir packages by default then.

    Re: Adding gnome extension in 17.10

    Greetings,
    The website and PPA connector works perfect on my Opera Browser. I installed it just to get the "removable drive" extension. I also installed the gnome-shell-extensions.
    However the software center addons/extensions doesn't work at all. The page won't populate even if I just leave it up. As a result I have had to add the word "almost" to my perfect computer.
