Dropbox Icon Notification Area red circle with diag like Ghostbusters

Post by hughparker1 on Sun May 15, 2016 4:16 am

I installed ChaletOS 16.04 on my DELL Inspiron 5559 laptop.
Code:
hugh@DELL-V-CHALETOS:~$ lsb_release -a
No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description: Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
Release: 16.04
Codename: xenial
hugh@DELL-V-CHALETOS:~$
Code:
hugh@DELL-V-CHALETOS:~$ echo $XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP
XFCE
hugh@DELL-V-CHALETOS:~$
I installed Dropbox but getting the dreaded Dropbox Icon which is red circle with cross like Ghostbusters, I tried a fix that I found and used in other distros ...
Code:
$ dropbox stop && dbus-launch dropbox start
this fixed the Dropbox icon, but I got some strange messages which indicates this may not be the best solution....
Code:
hugh@DELL-V-CHALETOS:~$ dropbox stop && dbus-launch dropbox start
Dropbox isn't responding!
Dropbox isn't responding!
Dropbox is already running!
hugh@DELL-V-CHALETOS:~$ dropbox stop && dbus-launch dropbox start
Dropbox isn't running!
Starting Dropbox.../usr/share/themes/ChaletOS_Default/gtk-2.0/style/app/panel.rc:57: Unable to locate image file in pixmap_path: "buttons/panel-button-normal.png"
/usr/share/themes/ChaletOS_Default/gtk-2.0/style/app/panel.rc:60: Background image options specified without filename

/usr/share/themes/ChaletOS_Default/gtk-2.0/style/app/panel.rc:92: Background image options specified without filename
Done!
hugh@DELL-V-CHALETOS:~$
the Dropbox icon did display correctly but after reboot, the icon error returns

I also tried this alternative command...
Code:
$ dropbox stop && DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS="" dropbox start
again, this fixed the Dropbox icon, but I get similar messages...
Code:
hugh@DELL-V-CHALETOS:~$ dropbox stop && DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS="" dropbox start
Dropbox daemon stopped.

Done!
hugh@DELL-V-CHALETOS:~$


Does anyone know best way to fix this? I'm quite new to linux and not sure how to proceed,

NOTE FOR DEVELOPERS: I was led to believe that the errors I received were related to the theme that I am using (ChaletOS_Default). It may have some errors in it.

I'm just posting to let the developers know in case there is a problem and also trying to find out how to fix the Dropbox icon error.
