Little tip to get your extensions running in Gnome 40

dconf-editor:

Just change to true.

Not ideal and not a global panacea, but has got the handful of extensions I use running.

Well, yeah. An extension needs to declare that it is compatible with a certain version of Gnome (the supported Gnome versions are listed in a config file of the extension), and that gets checked by the system. This workaround disables the compatibility validation. Nevertheless, the extension in question still needs to support / work properly on said Gnome version of course :laughing:

But most of the time they indeed run just fine on newer versions of Gnome

Hidetopbar works, but it’s settings do not open, this is the only problem so far :smiley: :smiley:

Wonder how long it will take for the major extensions to support Gnome 40.
