Fedora/Linux tray icon submenu

Fedora/Linux tray icon submenu

Hi I clearly remember years ago that the tray icons had many options.

Now not anymore:

Schermata del 2020-11-06 18-32-00.png

Sorry, I know, it's Italian but I guess you can understand it as well..

For ex. it always says "connessione in corso" that stands for "connecting". What about the other sub menu options? 

I'm running Fedora 33 with the latest beta (110.x.x.) dropbox client.

Thanks

Hey there @neuromante, I hope you're well today!

 

It looks like the app is having trouble connecting to the server, which is why there are no other sub menu options.

 

Can you let me know if you have any trouble accessing the Dropbox website at all, through your preferred web browser?

 

Are you using a proxy or have a firewall running on your device?

 

Looking forward to hearing back from you!

Hi @Daphne and thanks for the reply

No, I don't have a firewall running neither a proxy (I double checked to be sure)

I can acces dropbox website easily, no problem.

Sync is working correctly.

Hi @neuromante,

Is there some reason you are using beta/test application version? Did you try stable release? If not, go in general settings and make sure "Early release" there is turn off. Next, run following commands in terminal (line by line):

dropbox stop
rm -rf ~/.dropbox-dist
dropbox start -i

Hope this helps.

Thanks for your hint but using stable won't help...already tried.

Ok, is there something strange on Dropbox startup? What is the result of:

dropbox stop; dropbox start

Some diagnostic messages appear there sometimes. Post the result. Let see it. 🤔

I've been having the same problem for probably years now. I'm using Fedora 33 - but it's been the same in 32, 31, and maybe earlier, too.

 

I tried turning off "Early releases" and re-installing Dropbox; didn't make a difference.

 

Nothing interesting happens when Dropbox starts up:

Nothing strange really...except for the libdbus stuff...

Really weird...it works on ubuntu and opensuse tumbleweed (under kde it's a graphical mess but I have all the submenu options)
