Thanks for your reply,
I’ve first installed the new ‘Gnome Tweaks’ to be sure
flatpak install -y flathub org.gnome.Extensions;
I copied directly dash-to-panel from my PC which dash-to-panel is OK to an USB key
cp -r ~/.firstname.lastname@example.org /run/media/clr_/USB_1_
I copied dash-to-panel from USB key to my Notebook
cp -r /run/media/clr_/USB_1_ ~/.email@example.com
I run the new ‘Gnome Tweaks’ :
flatpak run org.gnome.Extensions; it allows the Top Bar,… modifications but no Extension are proposed.
metadata.json seems OK …

But It does not work !!!
Then Finally ( a shame ) I ‘solved’ badly the Problem by Installing an old Version of clear-32480-live-desktop.iso ( dated March 2020 with Gnome 3.34.3 and a nice DashToDock ) of course Offline installation with autoupdate Disabled
Then on version 32480 :
- I’ve install DashToPanel directly from Software Center
- Tweaks is already installed
- I made an
swupd update; swupd update --3rd-party; to upgarde my Clear Linux OS from 32480 to 34900.
It took long but it works fine, I just had to :
- delete DashToDock not yet supported by Gnome 40
- Activate Dash to Panel
On my Notebook Dash to Panel was still not accessible :
I’ve just ‘installed’ again clear-32480-live-desktop.iso again without formatting existing partitions to keep CLR 34900 it modified nothing except Enabling Dash To Panel.
Very very tricky but it works perfect.
Concerning your remark about distros :
I currently using many distros even at job but my preferred are :
- Clear Linux OS ( all purpose )
- Solus ( Fun and Dev )
- RedHat ( Professional and Dev )
- Manjaro ( Hobby )
- openSUSE & SUSE ( by habits and Professional )
- Fedora ( Full of options but not consistent )
- Slackware ( not so often because still on 14.2 )
I will never stop using Clear Linux OS as principal Distro unless DashToPanel becomes unavailable
