I just tried and gnome-shell kept crashing.  Is there any required plugins?

Also is there any plans to have a wiki page or a common places for all these extensions (something like google chrome or firefox extensions pages)?

I can see this being a scattered mess with extensions popping up all over the web.


No, it doesn't require any plugin. Which system are you on? If you boot into runlevel 3, login and then do 'startx' to start gnome, error messages would be visible on Ctrl+Alt+F1. I would be very much thankful if you could post the error that caused the crash.

Yes, it would be great if the official developers create a wiki for extensions and keep all those TESTED OK extensions. Maybe they will one day.

reliable to use sysfs paths. It could break with different kernel

What you need is a portable library (upower? libgtop? something entirely
new?) providing that information, possibly developed along with the


Yeah, that would be more reliable. The extension finds the temperature from the file /sys/bus/acpi/devices/LNXTHERM\:00/thermal_zone/temp. Don't know if there is more generic way to do it. Maybe a similar file on sys fs exists in all kind of system that stores the temperature, so the extension could be made to check all those possible files and use the correct one for the system. I certainly should do more research to find the most efficient way that would be utilizing something that comes with the kernel. Thanks for the vision.
