Hello, I'm giving GNOME 3.22 a spin and want to install some destop extensions. Apparently the way to do this is to navigate to http://extensions.gnome.org but tht page says that it can't detect GNOME on my system. The solution to that is to install the GNOME shell integration plugin in Epiphany. That's where I need help. On the preferences dialog, the enable plugins checkbox is ticked. Navigating to about:plugins in Epiphany gives a page showing just the single word Plugins, very faint but in large font.

So my question is: how does one install and activate this shell integration plugin into Epiphany?

Install gnome-shell with USE=nsplugin and it ought to work with epiphany for now.
To get this for chromium, vivaldi, future firefox that has nsplugin disabled for non-flash and many others, install chrome-google-shell and follow the post-install instructions (need an add-on in addition to the package in this case).
