Well, what the title says : is there any way to integrate Dropbox in the messaging menu like ubuntu one ?

Edit: Below is an image showing where Ubuntu One is on the messaging menu That is where I ask if I can put dropbox, NOT on the panel itself.

It is not possible (as far as I know) to move DP from its standard place in the traybar to the message menu. You can only add a shortcut in Message Indicator menu:

Open a terminal and type:

sudo gedit /usr/share/indicators/messages/applications/dropbox

In the editor, type following text and save:

/usr/bin/dropbox

thanks, but it didn't work - have you done it yourself on your system? –  Chriskin May 14 '11 at 10:21
    
I did not add DP in my Message menu, but I did the same for other applications. Can you provide additional information on what did not work while trying my solution? –  igi May 14 '11 at 11:54
    
Eh..nothing happened at all after a restart - dropbox was just on its normal place and nothing was in the messaging menu –  Chriskin May 14 '11 at 12:23
    
I have clarified my answer. –  igi May 14 '11 at 16:57

Even though the second part of the answer didn't work for me, i tick this one as an answer for the first sentence - which pretty much answers what i asked for. Sorry for the delay –  Chriskin May 22 '11 at 23:24

If you'd previously installed Dropbox, it's likely that the Dropbox daemon hasn't updated, which is part of why you don't see the indicator. To force the update, do this in a terminal window within GNOME:

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

You should then get a pop-up window prompting you about updating Dropbox.

I thought that messaging thing was an indicator... –  maco May 10 '11 at 17:52
    
the messaging menu is an indicator, true. but i don't think that you can put any indicator you want inside it, can you? Have you seen how ubuntu one works? –  Chriskin May 12 '11 at 20:44
