Re: Beta Build 64.3.123

Thanks for using Dropbox and helping test our beta build!
 
Here are the specific changes for v64.3.123:
  • Fix a rare issue where the tray panel that opens when the tray icon is clicked is sometimes blank.
 
Here are the specific changes for v64.3.121:
  • Fix an issue that prevented Smart Sync online only files from being opened on Windows.
 
v64 Release Notes
  • 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
try:
    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'])
except:
    print("StatusNotifierWatcher host is not registered.")
    raise
 
  • 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.

Report: Small display bug on latest BETA build (64.3.123)

In the latest beta build, the checkbox at the bottom left of the display seems to show a superposition of a thin gray checkbox and a fatter white checkbox on a green circular background, see attached.

I am posting this here instead of replyig to the beta announcement since try to reply gives me an error message "An unexpected error has occurred".

Hey @Martin H.53, I moved your post here; perhaps some like-minded community members will have some more ideas to share on this with you. 
 
Let us know if you have any other questions in the meantime!

I talked with Martin over email, and it looks like the display bug is fixed in v65, which is the current beta release.
