Re: Beta Build 64.3.120


Thanks for using Dropbox and helping test our beta build! Here are the user visible changes in v64:

  • Fix the tray icon to work in more Linux desktop environments. Specifically:
    • XFCE. Tested on Xubuntu 18.04 and Xubuntu 14.04.
    • LXDE. Tested on Lubuntu 18.04.
    • Gnome Flashback. Tested on Ubuntu 18.04.
    • MATE. Tested on Ubuntu 18.04.
    • Gnome on Fedora 29 with the (K)StatusNotifierItem/AppIndicator Support” extension and libappindicator installed. (Note, the TopIcons Plus” extension worked previously, and still works.)
The Linux Dropbox app has two implementations of the tray icon: one using libappindicator, and one using Qt’s QSystemTrayIcon. Previously, libappindicator was only used if certain desktop environments (like Unity) were detected. That would cause Dropbox to fallback to the QSystemTrayIcon implementation for certain desktop environments, which didn’t work correctly if there was a “StatusNotifierWatcher” host registered.
Now, if the following conditions are met, then Dropbox will use libappindicator to create the tray icon:
  • There is a “StatusNotifierWatcher” host registered.
  • Either libappindicator3 or libappindicator is installed.
You can check to see if you have a “StatusNotifierWatcher” host registered by running the following as a python script:
import dbus
    session_bus = dbus.SessionBus()
    watcher = session_bus.get_object("org.kde.StatusNotifierWatcher", "/StatusNotifierWatcher")
    props_iface = dbus.Interface(watcher, "org.freedesktop.DBus.Properties")
    props = props_iface.GetAll("org.kde.StatusNotifierWatcher")
    print("IsStatusNotifierHostRegistered:", props['IsStatusNotifierHostRegistered'])
    print("StatusNotifierWatcher host is not registered.")
  • Fix some accessibility issues with preferences panel.
  • Enable position independent executable on Linux.
  • Fix a bug where some users that unlinked a paired account would be unable to interact with Dropbox until the app restarted.
What are stable and beta builds?
