Problem with GNOME Extensions

Asked by Silvio Arnone on 2018-11-04

 I have been installing some GNOME Extensions, one of them does’nt work so I removed it ( no more listed on my page “Installed Extensions”), on the application’s page comes out as “OFF”. It is:
Applications Menu
by fmuellner
https://extensions.gnome.org/extension/6/applications-menu/
It is still on the bar and I don’t know how to get rid of it

Ubuntu 18.04 - Bionic Beaver

How did you install it?

Silvio Arnone (sybelius) said : #2

Through the Gnome Extensions page

Silvio Arnone (sybelius) said : #3

I specify that in the folder ~/.local/share/gnome-shell/extensions I don't have nothing concerning the faulty extension

I add a pic showing my bar now: the first "Applicazioni" (the one with Ubuntu logo) added later is working; the second one "Applicazioni" first installed is the faulty one that I am unable to remove from the bar.

I assume that this "applications-menu by fmueller" is still installed in the global area of your system.

Try removing the directory /<email address hidden> and its contents.

Done. And... SOLVED!
I really appreciate your kind help
THANK YOU
Ciao
