Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1009994
gnome-shell-extension-pidgin isn't compatible with gnome-shell 3.8
Last modified: 2013-11-10 01:51:55 EST
Description of problem:
The extension "Pidgin Conversation Integration" is marked as outdated.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
[root@cooper admin]# rpm -q gnome-shell
[root@cooper admin]# rpm -q gnome-shell-extension-pidgin
Steps to Reproduce:
Install gnome-shell-extension-pidgin; start GNOME
Fedora installs extensions that are compatible with the shipped GNOME version.
The rpm package has a dependency on "gnome-shell >= 3.6":
[root@cooper admin]# rpm -qR gnome-shell-extension-pidgin
gnome-shell >= 3.6
but the package itself depends on "gnome-shell == 3.6":
[root@cooper admin]# cat /firstname.lastname@example.org/metadata.json
"shell-version": [ "3.6" ],
The extension has been rewritten for 3.8:
Apparently the reqrite required non-trivial changes.
The same problem occurs for several extensions, on my system:
