Dropbox overlay icons visible in Nautilus, but not in Nemo

Postby Roland on Fri Nov 23, 2012 6:45 am

Mint 14, Cinnamon, 32-bit.

Installed dropbox as always from the dropbox-site.

Syncing is no problem; however, overlay icons (synchronized, not yet synchronized) are missing. I tried changing theme and icons, and tried
https://www.dropbox.com/help/154/en
Unlinking, relinking, reinstalling and so on: no overlay icons.

Any suggestions?

Hi.

I'm new to mint. How do I install dropbox? You mentioned I should install from the site. Should I choose debian or Ubuntu? Thanks

Off topic:

Ubuntu, as Mint is based on Ubuntu.

It is due to Nemo: I can see the icons in Nautilus, but not in Nemo. Tested on Mint13-64 laptop with Cinnamon 1.6 and Nemo.
Minor problem; I can live with it.

I have the same issue here, you're not alone.

However, I noticed that there is a nemo-dropbox extension, but requires me to remove dropbox itself. I haven't had the guts to try it out.
Code: Select all
mamlouk@mamloukwks ~ $ sudo aptitude search dropbox
[sudo] password for mamlouk:
p   caja-dropbox                    - Dropbox integration for Caja             
i   dropbox                         - Dropbox integration for Nautilus         
p   libnet-dropbox-api-perl         - Perl module providing a dropbox API interf
p   nautilus-dropbox                - Dropbox integration for Nautilus         
p   nemo-dropbox                    - Dropbox integration for Nemo

I had the guts, I did "sudo apt-get install nemo-dropbox" and it says it will remove dropbox before the terminal prompt so I put in Y for yes.
Then it said use "nemo --quit" to quit any current instances of nemo so I did, but then dropbox was still in my menu and I started it and got the syncing icons. :)
