Dropbox icon and ubuntu 15.10

ximport ubuntu 15.10 16.04 18.04 xfce dropbox syncthing

This page is about dropbox, but as you may have noticed this page has the flag syncthing, because syncthing is an interesting FOSS alternative.

EDIT: This issue has been fixed in 18.04

No more dropbox icon?

Stop Dropbox:

dropbox stop

edit ~/.dropbox-dist/dropboxd and add export DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS="" the line after #!/bin/sh:

PAR=$(dirname "$(readlink -f "$0")")
exec "$PAR/dropbox-lnx.x86_64-49.4.69/dropboxd" "$@"

Then restart dropbox:

dropbox start
