The worst thing about the GNOME extensions is that they always get disabled randomly after a restart. I don’t know why they don’t fix it but I will show you a solution for the meantime.
First, Enable all of the extensions that you want on.
Next we will create a script to update the list of enabled extensions. Make sure you save it to ~/.local/bin/extension-update
# ~/.local/bin/extension-update active_extensions=$(gsettings get org.gnome.shell enabled-extensions) autostart_file=$HOME/.config/autostart/restore-extensions.desktop echo -e "Currently active extensions:\n\e[34m$active_extensions\e[0m" echo -e "[Desktop Entry]\nType=Application" > $autostart_file echo Exec=gsettings set org.gnome.shell enabled-extensions \"$active_extensions\" >> $autostart_file echo -e "Hidden=false\nNoDisplay=false\nX-GNOME-Autostart-enabled=true\nName=Restore Extensions\nComment=Restore enabled extensions on login" >> $autostart_file echo "Command to restore currently active extensions added to $HOME/.config/autostart/restore-extensions.desktop" exit
Then make the script executable:
chmod +x ~/.local/bin/extension-update
Now anytime you want to update the enabled list run the script:
This will create or update an autostart entry at ~/.config/autostart/restore-extensions.desktop that will be run when you start your computer and all the extensions will be loaded.
