Disable Window Switcher Popup
This is my first GNOME 3 shell extension. I created this because I saw no way to disable the huge popup displayed dead center of the screen when switching between workspaces, other than editing
/usr/share/gnome-shell/js/ui/workspaceSwitcherPopup.js and setting the value of
DISPLAY_TIMEOUT to zero.
From the GNOME Extensions Page:
From the Command-line:
Create a folder in ~/.local/share/gnome-shell/extensions called email@example.com and move extension.js and metadata.json into that folder:
# mkdir -p ~/.local/share/gnome-shell/extensions 2>/dev/null # git clone git://github.com/windsorschmidt/disable-workspace-switcher-popup \ ~/.firstname.lastname@example.org
From Zip Archive:
Download extension.zip above.
Using GNOME Tweak Tool, click the box near "Install Shell Extension" and select the downloaded file.
Enabling the Extension:
Restart the GNOME Shell with the key sequence: Alt-F2 + "r" then ENTER.
Using GNOME Tweak Tool, navigate to the Shell Extensions pane and enable the plugin by clicking the switch widget:
Note: You may need to restart GNOME Tweak Tool and/or re-log in to your session in order for the extension to appear in the list of installed extensions.
Thanks to users for suggesting changes and poking me for version updates.
