How can I get the Dropbox icon to appear in the top bar with GNOME?

How can I get the Dropbox icon to appear in the top bar with GNOME?

Will DropBox ever fix there app to display on the DropBox icon in the top bar in Gnome?  Without this I can't choose which folders to sync/not sync.  This issue has been a problem for a year in most distros except Ubuntu.  There are other linux distros besides Ubuntu.

Hey there @vaportrail,
 
Can you just let me know if you also have the GNOME shell TopIcons extension installed on your machine? As mentioned in our system requirements, you will need this extension to get the tray icon to show.
 
Hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions - Thanks!

Didn't realize the "TopIcon" extension was in the sys requirements.  Got the extension installed and the DropBox tray icon is working now.  Thanks!
