- Boot into a GNOME 3 session with GNOME Shell
- Make sure you have
or via running: yum install gnome-tweak-tool
- Have several extensions installed as in previous case.
How to test
- Run gnome-tweak-tool (Applications->Accessories->Advanced Settings) and go to the Shell Extensions tab to see installed extensions.
- Click on the Install Shell Extension button and install an extension manually. You can find some at various extension home pages, linked from extensions.gnome.org - or you can use this one: []
- Gradually enable all the extensions you have installed.
- Keep with enabling/disabling various extensions for some time.
- Gradually disable all of the extensions.
- After step one, you should see installed extensions, and all should be in the off state unless you have previously activated them.
- Extensions installed from file should load into the list and you should be able to activate then. If extension is already installed, gnome-tweak-tool should update it.
- As you keep enabling and disabling extensions they should load / unload accordingly. Activating an extension should not result in it's on/off indicator switching back to off on it's own after some time has passed. If the switch comes back right away, this may be because of incompatible/faulty extension. Please note that some extensions won't visible alter gnome-shell when you enable them unless some conditions have been met (i.e. Media player indicator).
- Even if particular extension is faulty, gnome-shell should in no case crash.
