Re: Dropbox 3.0.3 systray icon

Tried

QT_STYLE_OVERRIDE=gtk ~/.dropbox-dist/dropboxd

to no effect.
Maybe in time they'll release a fix...

Re: Dropbox 3.0.3 systray icon

john, look inside ~/.dropbox-dist/dropbox-lnx.x86_64-3.0.3/images/hicolor/16x16/status

Maybe you can replace the icons there?

Edit: works for me with .pngs. My preference is to use svg icons but they didn't seem to work.

Re: Dropbox 3.0.3 systray icon

@flaneur I was just about to post about that very thing. I tried replacing those icons with ones from Faenza-Dark-Crunchbang, and yes I got back my nice grey icon... but, with a square white background! The icons themselves are transparent, but that white background is coming in from somewhere else I guess.

I might also mention that the popup menu no longer follows the gtk theme like all the other systray apps. I suppose this is all connected with the switch to Qt. sad

Re: Dropbox 3.0.3 systray icon

+1 on changing the icons in the .dropbox-dist/ directory, got the icons changed, but the background remains white. 
the QT_STYLE_OVERRIDE is set to gtk.  But still the white background, and still the non-gtk theme on the dropbox dropdown menu.
turned off compton, and still the white background for the dropbox tray icon

Re: Dropbox 3.0.3 systray icon

I'm using stalonetray as system tray and I've got the same issue:

Status icons can be changed by changing dropbox-dist/dropbox-lnx.x86_64-3.0.3/images/hicolor/16x16/status but background remains white regardless of using icons with transparent background.

Really strange! What change in dropbox could possibly cause system trays to not render icon transparency ...?

Re: Dropbox 3.0.3 systray icon

Same problem here... But the strange fact is that on my notebook I have the Dropbox icon with white background while on my desktop everything is fine (transparent background). Probably there are some issues with the compositor...

Edit:
It is a problem with the compositor: in my notebook autostart.sh script if I use the following lines

## Group start:
## 1. nitrogen - restores wallpaper
## 2. compositor - start
## 3. sleep - give compositor time to start
## 4. tint2 panel
(\
nitrogen --restore && \
cb-compositor --start && \
sleep 2s && \
tint2 \
) &

then the Dropbox icon is fine but all the other icons are messed up... If instead I use

## Group start:
## 1. nitrogen - restores wallpaper
## 2. compositor - start
## 3. sleep - give compositor time to start
## 4. tint2 panel
(\
nitrogen --restore && \
#cb-compositor --start && \
sleep 2s && \
tint2 \
) &

## Start compositor
(sleep 10s && cb-compositor --start) &

then the Dropbox icon has white background while the other icons are fine...

Re: Dropbox 3.0.3 systray icon

just to restate, I have stopped and started compton several times, logged in with and without it, and it has no effect on the icon.  still a white background.  it has to be a qt vs. gtk issue...

Re: Dropbox 3.0.3 systray icon

Okay, I can reproduce the white background on my system this way:
pkill dropbox
pkill tint2
pkill compton

Then, if I start
tint2 then
compton then
dropbox
All is well

But if I do
tint2
dropbox
compton

there's the white background. Killing and restarting dropbox doesn't help.

Here's my compton.conf:

focus-exclude = ["n:a:Conky"]; # https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=1293686#p1293686
inactive-opacity = 1.0;
inactive-dim = 0.2;
mark-ovredir-focused = true;
shadow = false;
no-dnd-shadow = true;
no-dock-shadow = true;
blur-background = false;

Re: Dropbox 3.0.3 systray icon

It seems like a bad idea to use an outdated version.

An ugly icon is better than security issues not being fixed ...
