Re: My extension has an error but lg says it doesn't...

I did as Clemens suggested an ran GS for a terminal using the --replace argument, if I remember correctly. Then the errors show up in the terminal. I then told GS to reload every time I wanted to try my latest changes. Good luck!

I have a similar problem trying to port my extension to the forthcoming 3.8 release. I used to debug it by running gnome-shell in a terminal and looking for errors logged there. When trying to run my extension I get the following error:

JS LOG: Extension "dash-to-dock micxgx gmail com" had error: Error: Expected type interface for Argument 'actor' but got type 'undefined' (nil)

with no other indication of the file and line where the problem occurs. Neither 
~/.cache/gdm/session.log nor  ~/.xsession-errors provide further information. 

Any idea of how to find the source of the problem?

Reporting extension errors in looking glass is broken in 3.6, see Note that even with
the bug fixed, the full error log on stderr is usually much more
useful than the information in looking glass.
