It's no wonder the main version of Ubuntu and other Gnome3 distros are dropping like flies. Having seen your screenshot I downloaded Ubuntu 18.04 and tried to take a look at it via a live session. I attempted several 'solutions' posted online to install this 'Dash to Panel' extension and every one failed with 'no installation candidate' or other assorted errors. Talk about frustrating when you can try out pretty much everything with so much ease in other distros. Please advise if you know how to achieve this with less than a day's work in a live Ubuntu session?

The error message "no installation candidate" appears when an installation package is missing, obsoleted or only available from another source.

In particular, the gksu package is no longer supported in Ubuntu 18.04 as it has been removed after Debian did the same.

I've installed the "Dash to Panel" extension to a desktop and a laptop running Ubuntu 18.04 with no issues after full installation, following the tips and tricks that I've updated here: Tips and Tricks for Ubuntu after Installation [Ubuntu 18.04 LTS]

Thanks for that but if it needs a full install just to try stuff out I think I'll give it a miss.

Ubuntu 18.04 GNOME with the Numix theme and Mono Dark Flattr icons.
Added a GNOME extension "Gno-Menu" for accessing apps by category.

The latest Q4OS 2.5 complete with Compiz\Emerald and Cairo Dock. Dolphin installed to replace Konqueror which I find too hard to navigate.

Ubuntu 18.04 with GNOME Shell Extension Appfolders Management, which allows you to group apps by category to the way you like.

If I use apt://chrome-gnome-shell to install "chrome-gnome-shell", it does appear "no installation candidate" in one of the Ubuntu machines. Using the Debian package "chrome-gnome-shell_10-1_all.deb" on this page to install "chrome-gnome-shell" has solved the issue.

Gnome extensions on Solus only work for me after initial updates and a reboot.

Btw, it seems that the only KDE distros don't do screen tearing for me.
Wonder why?

HP EliteBook 8460p with Win 10 64bit.
