Dropbox Icon is missing from icon tray since 09 Dic
I guess that is from dropbox 3.02
I'm ussing mate desktop 1.8 on slackware 14.1 and dropbox was working properly for last year
Since 09 Dic for the first two days it appeared as an icon with black background ,
but today the icon is missing.
Some comment talks about to set QT_STYLE_OVERRIDE, but this
has no effect. Simply the icon is missing.
However dropbox is running and synchronized
Does I need to recompile caja-dropbox again ?
Thanks and regards.
I downgraded to Dropbox 2.10.52. I am also experiencing the intermittent tray icon disappearing in Dropbox 3.0.3. (Desktop environment is Xfce.)
Is there a bug tracker somewhere? I know we are not the only ones experiencing this problem. I would like to make sure that Dropbox (company) knows about this regression so they can fix it.
Same here (Linux Mint 17.1, MATE 1.8.1, Dropbox 3.0.3).
Caja icons overlays (ticks over files and folders) work perfectly as well as context menus. Still, tray icon loads every other time (if it does not show up and i try
dropbox stop and then
dropbox start -i, it shows up.
~/.xsession-errors shows the following:

BTW, forgot to add that Dropbox version 2.x used to accept systemwide icon theme, but after update to 3.x it uses only the icon from ~/.dropbox-dist/dropbox-lnx.x86_64-3.0.3/images/hicolor/16x16/status (and when replacing the icons there - with same filetype and resolution - tray icon never appears unless I restore the original icon files).
I've been too quick on this one. The (new type) icon appears from time to time. When it doesn't show, I still can see a vertical black line where it should belong. If I click on the very black line, it shows the contect menu.
I found another workaround : it works with the command
dropbox stop && dbus-launch dropbox start
you can make this a systematic command by editing the command that runs at session startup (System > Preferences > Applications at startup) and the command in the Software/Applications menu (System > Preferences > Main Menu). You obiously do not need dropbox stop if dropbox is not already running.
