Dropbox icon disappears on taskbar [Solved]

Postby t0psy » 27 Dec 2014 12:55

My dropbox icon disappears from the task bar when compositing is enabled.
This is a recent change, it has been there prior to today.
I use "compton" as the compositor, however if I disable this and run the Xfce compositor I get the same result.
Running without isn't the end of the world, I just wondered if anyone would know how to debug this.

I found that newest dropbox (3.xx) is buggy. the older version work just fine. I'm using the old 2.10.3

Yes thanks for that, I found a thread here:-

It appears that it is not an Xfce issue and other DE's are affected too.
Now how to downgrade or ride out till a fix update?

unfortunately you can't. dropbox will always looking for the newest version unless you use the tar compressed version.

You are correct, I have had a trawl and an older pre V3 version is not easily available.
I have posted a question on the Dropbox Forum about this issue so as to at least register the problem.
