Hi Vincenzo,

I had the exact same situation as you.
You may have already found the workarounds, but the below is what you can

$ dropbox stop && DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS="" dropbox start

This brought the dropbox icon back to me.

You can see that many have the same issue with you.


Hope this helps,

> This morning after an update of my xubuntu 14-04 (on acer aspire one
d250) the icon of dropbox in tray disappeared and in place a sort of “no
access” icon is now present; it is clearly related to dropbox because doing
a dropbox stop (in terminal) it disappears and doing a dropbox start it
comes back again.

can I have back the original dropbox icon ? Thank you very much
