@pntripathi9417 I'm in the same situation. I was able to compile the thing, but then I was not sure what to do with the "" file. Now that you mentioned the manifest file I'll give it a try.
Any help will be much appreciated!

I've made some progress... installed the extension by using Chromium extension options and selecting developer's mode. Then, pointing to chrome-extension-mac path inside DepthJS folder. Now DepthJS is listed there, and an icon appears on my toolbar. But clicking this icon throws an error:

chrome-extension://oacgmoidikmgdakgicblegbocfholoag/popup.html Not Found

Not sure what to do next...

"chrome-extension://oacgmoidikmgdakgicblegbocfholoag/popup.html Not Found"
i have the exact same problem, but on a mac. Any ideas?

I'm running Gentoo linux. But I have the same problem. Is there any way, how to compile and install this software on linux?

There is no documentation about installing on linux and now i don't now, what to do or what log post to this forum.

Does anybody know, what to do?

If I solve this problem, I can write manual: How to install DEPTHJS on linux.

Oh damn. says:

####January 2012: Now working on Linux and Windows Support.
####March 2012: Windows plugin now works with Chrome - use Firebreath to build (see instructions below)

It looks like, that Linux is not supported right now. We have to wait.

Does anybody know, when will be Linux supported?

What a pity, I thought that Linux is already supported.
