This question already has an answer here:

I installed Ubuntu 13.10, then installed Dropbox from Ubuntu Software Center. Yet starting Dropbox seems to have no effect, and the Dropbox icon doesn't appear in the top-right indicator area like it normally does. Dropbox is apparently running, but the indicator/menu doesn't show up.

  • Is nautilus running? The indicator for dropbox is a nautilus extension. – dobey Oct 17 '13 at 20:31
