Dropbox system tray icoon missing

Hi,
I am using Debian Buster and recently switched to Xfce4.
I noticed that the dropbox system tray icon is missing. Dropboxd is working fine, and if I switch back to gnome, I can find the dropbox system tray icon.
I re-installed dropbox in vain. I searched the internet but could not find an answer.

Would someone help me on this isssue?

Re: Dropbox system tray icoon missing

How did you install dropbox in buster?
Is the Notification Area plugin added to the panel?

There should also be an .xsession-errors file in your home directory. Perhaps posting back the contents of that file after a fresh login.

Note: On my buster 64-bit test vm, I've installed dropbox via:

cd ~ && wget -O - "https://www.dropbox.com/download?plat=lnx.x86_64" | tar xzf -

...and created an autostart entry that runs:

/home/toz/.dropbox-dist/dropboxd

...and the icon appears in the Notification Area.

Re: Dropbox system tray icoon missing

Thanks ToZ

Yes, my setup is exactly the same as yours.

Today, I noticed that the dropbox icon is not missing but present in the Notification Area. It is only that the icon is blank and transparent. I can click on this blank icon and handle the dropbox setting.

This is very weird, but my problem is solved practically now.

My ~/.xsession-errors is as follows.

So is everything working okay now, or is the icon still transparent?

If the icon is still transparent, does this command work:

dropbox stop && env DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS="" dropbox start -i

Re: Dropbox system tray icoon missing

Thanks ToZ

The icon is still transparent, but I can work with it.
The suggested command did not work.
Further troubleshooting is too much for me, so I will live with it. Or I may switch back to gnome3.

Thank you very much for your help.
