The dropbox indicator is not working properly. The third funny looking icon is dropbox.

Dropbox indicator

I can confirm that because this icon disappears after dropbox stop, and it appears again after dropbox start or dropbox start -i.

The indicator comes with an empty menu. It's annoying and useless. While dropbox is still working on the background.

I'm using Ubuntu 15.10 and Xfce desktop. appindicator1 installed and have tried to reinstall dropbox. The dropbox version is 3.14.7, it seems 3.12.5 doesn't come with this problem.

This seems to be a recent bug with the last update. It is also affecting my install on ubuntu 14.04 lts after the last update file a report on https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/nautilus-dropbox/+bug/1546176

Same here using xubuntu 14.04.3

I found this entry in ~/.cache/xfce4-indicator-plugin.log repeated every time I restarted Dropbox

DEBUG      Indicator-Application     Building new application entry: org.kde.StatusNotifierItem-2553-1  with icon:  at position 1
DEBUG      libindicator-plugin       Entry added for io=libapplication.so
WARNING    LIBDBUSMENU-GLIB          Getting layout failed: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.UnknownObject: No such object path '/MenuBar'
CRITICAL   LIBDBUSMENU-GLIB          dbusmenu_menuitem_send_about_to_show: assertion 'DBUSMENU_IS_MENUITEM(mi)' failed

The last line was repeated every time I clicked on the panel icon.

I only just now confirmed that my installation was updated on 2/16/16 without me knowing about it!

  • I see the same messages here and the DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS="" trick isn't working anymore.
