Just did a fairly minimal install of OpenSUSE 13.1, including gnome-shell 3.10.1. [Long frustrated rant deleted] I can't get GNOME shell extensions to work at all.

Initially when I went to the extensions website, I couldn't install anything. Eventually I discovered the secret, undocumented gnome-shell-browser-plugin package. Having installed that, the little on/off switch now appears on the website. However, when I switch it to On, nothing happens. And if I navigate off the page and back again, it's gone back to Off.

Who do I have to murder to make this actually work again?

    @JeroenBollen I haven't managed to fix it yet. I did, however, discover that if you can find a suitable download site, you can just manually copy the files to /usr/share/gnome-shell/extensions. It's hardly "convenient", though. – MathematicalOrchid May 16 '14 at 18:43
