Ubuntu 17.10 "Artful Aardvark" is using GNOME but we cannot install GNOME Shell Extensions (GSE) from GNOME website by default. This happens because Artful doesn't ship with special feature "to connect" between the Extensions Repo and the Desktop. This short tutorial shows you how to install that feature and then install any GSE you love as you wish. Enjoy!
