Last update broke Unite extension


The Gnome-shell-unite extension (aur package) doesn’t work since last update. I first though it is because they didn’t upgrade the extension. But on Github, they seems to be ready for Gnome 45. And Manjaro is under Gnome 44.5.

Does somebody know where is the problem ?

You need to remove thirdparty extensions before upgrade.

Please see [Unstable Update] GNOME 45

Don’t you mean after?

I meant remove - then reinstall after

Ah, yes. My apologies. My stupid brain read remove as reinstall.

@linux-aarhus : I use the stable version, currently under gnome 44.5. I tried to uninstall and reinstall Unite (after upgrade to 44.5), with no effect.

You should still have gnome-shell-extension-unite 72-1 (last version to support GNOME 44) in your package cache. Install that and do not update it until GNOME 45 arrives in the stable branch.

Or simply switch to testing branch and update to Gnome 45: Switching Branches - Manjaro

Ok, how I am supposed to do that ?

Check if it’s in your cache:

cd /var/cache/pacman/pkg/
ls | grep gnome-shell-extension-unite

If it is:

sudo pacman -U gnome-shell-extension-unite-72-1-any.pkg.tar.zst

Thanks, but it is not in the cache.

Edit : I probably installed it graphically. Does pamac have it own cache in a different directory than pacman ?
