  • Linux Lite: 4.6 64bit

  • CPU: Intel Core i5-5300U (-HT-MCP-)

  • MEMORY: 8Gb

  • VIDEO CARD: Intel Broadwell-U Integrated Graphics
Sometimes when I reboot, the problem (red circle with with red diagonal line) returns.  And when I go to Application Autostart, I see the Dropbox entry that I removed has returned.  So to continue the workaround, I remove it again, logout, and then log back on.

Anyone else experiencing this?

Yes, on one of my three LL machines this happens, most of the time, but not every time. I am absolutely baffled as to why so I can offer you no help, only company.

Heres one that does work - https://dl-web.dropbox.com/u/17/dropbox-lnx.x86_64-3.12.5.tar.gz it will extract to /home/user/.dropbox-dist/dropbox-lnx.x86_64-3.12.5 then just create an autostart for it :)

FYI - just tested this on LL3.0, tray icon shows normally without a workaround :) Hope this is true for everyone else when 3.0 is released.

I'm still getting this issue in LL 3.0.  I also still have to go to Sessions & Startup every so often to remove the Dropbox session that doesn't work.  Anyone else?

Torreydale, in the meantime do this:



Works a treat here after several login/outs.

I tried this inadvertently on my desktop, which is still LL 2.8.

I just now tried it on my laptop, which is LL 3.0.  Perhaps I typed something incorrectly, but I have the black box with the red circle and red diagonal line still.

Topic split off original thread as that was Solved.
Not sure what else to try torreydale, I have tested my method thoroughly without any issues.

So that I can copy and paste, can you enter your solution using the insert code button?

I had to do a screenshot as mod_security on the web server interprets some code as malicious.

Code is here - https://www.dropbox.com/install?os=lnx

Hello!

Don't know if this is related, but when *I* tried installing Dropbox (from their .deb file), the notification area icon and box didn't work for me, either. Found a permanent fix by editing the Dropbox config file as follows:

In a terminal window [CTRL-ALT-T], type or copy/paste the following:

Code: [Select]
sudo leafpad /usr/bin/dropbox
Create a new line after 'import os' and add the following:

os.environ['DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS'] = ""

Save [CTRL-S] and reboot.

Details here: http://askubuntu.com/questions/732816/xubuntu-dropbox-icon-fail

I have the old way (the way Jerry showed in the 2.x series) working via Lite Software.  The problem is whenever I try to remove the Application Autostart created by Dropbox, it keeps coming back.  Even if I uncheck and remove it, and log out and back in, it'll reappear.  That is the Application Autostart that I think gives me the red circle with the diagonal line.  Is there a way to permanently remove that Application Autostart?
