Hi torreydale,

Have you also taken into consideration the additional information that eightbit posted?

I would like to add that you must right click on the dropbox icon in the tray (after adding the autostart that Jerry posted and logging out/in), choose preferences and UNCHECK start dropbox on system startup. If you do not do this your application autostart dropbox modification will be returned to the "dropbox -i" command and the tray icon will be broken again on next reboot. It was driving me crazy wondering why the setting I changed kept getting reverted. Even if I deleted the dropbox autostart it would be re-created on next boot. Ugh. Turn off the preference and then use Jerry's command in the autostart and it works fine.

Hope that helps :)

That makes too much sense.  I'm unchecking it now.

And it doesn't address the concern.  I'm one of those people who prefers to have some or all of my Dropbox files synchronized to my desktop.  Their desktop client allows that.  I was merely trying to get it to work as intended.

I wish Dropbox would care enough to fix this.

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

Sorry for the delay, but just got round to doing this, so thanks N4RPS, works perfect for me.

Keith.

I just wanted to confirm I have had the same issue with dropbox icon and N4RPS post helped mi to solve the problem. Anyway, this is annoying and I think it should be pointed somewhere in the help files.

I've fixed and tested a patch for this and uploaded the new dropbox packages. Should be fine now.

Hi everybody!

In my computer the dropbox icon in the panel was not working. Also the left-click-menu wasn't working too. So I came to this thread and see that the line
Code: [Select]
os.environ['DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS'] = ""
was in the /usr/bin/dropbox file. I commented it (with "#") and started Dropbox with
Code: [Select]
dbus-launch dropbox start and it came to life.
To clarify, I have LinuxLite 3.4 on a Dell Inspiron Mini 1018 but I had to install upstart and sddm for the OS to work in my computer. Maybe that's the problem in my case.

Hope this helps anyone.

The package in Lite Software still works fine in regards to the tray icon.
