Download GNOME Shell Zeitgeist extension (compatible with GNOME Shell 3.2).

To install it, extract the downloaded archive and copy the folder to ~/.local/share/gnome-shell/extensions (or /usr/share/gnome-shell/extensions). If you've installed a previous version, remove the "gimmie@gnome-shell-extensions.gnome.org" folder.

Then use GNOME Tweak Tool to activate it. The extension should start working immediately, without having to restart GNOME Shell.
