How to install gnome-browser-connector?

I tried many methods on the forum,like this one: but it doesn’t work at all…

I typed “cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr -DBUILD_EXTENSION=OFF …/” and got this output `CMake Warning:
Ignoring extra path from command line:


“CMake Error: The source directory “/home/…/chrome-gnome-shell” does not appear to contain CMakeLists.txt.
Specify --help for usage, or press the help button on the CMake GUI.”
Sorry for my terrible edit :confused:


I have not tried but wondering if you tried adapting the Arch Linux install method;

$ git clone
$ cd gnome-browser-connector
$ makepkg -si

Probably will not work!!

This web page may be of help.

This may work;

Then clone source repository or download latest release tarball. To make git clone type:

$ git clone GNOME / gnome-browser-connector · GitLab

All commands must be issued from the root of cloned repository.

Run meson to build the project into 'builddir' directory

$ meson --prefix=/usr builddir

Install the files into /usr (administrative privileges required)

# meson install -C builddir

I also asked chatGPT for help.
