AFAIK the account plugins only work on Gnome Shell and not on Cinnamon.

I'm, probably too late on this but I had the same problem and fixed it by running this command in a terminal: "sudo apt reinstall gnome-control-center-signon"

Hope this helps

gnome-control-center's online accounts is integrated with gnome-shell - it won't work with Cinnamon.
Thank you for this thread. That’s all I can say. You most definitely have made this forum into something special. You clearly know what you are doing, you’ve covered so many bases. Thanks!

Yeah, gnome-shell (and Unity) is way ahead in that department. You get the feeling that none of the devs working on Cinnamon have changed PC habits since the 90s. Online accounts integration is a basic requirement in a modern OS, and there's not even something in the pipeline for Cinnamon other than perhaps a stock mail applet.

Again, even if you get the icon to appear in Cinnamon, Online Accounts doesn't integrate with Cinnamon, so your chat/mail/social media messages won't appear anywhere. Unity and gnome-shell have it because they have it integrated with the shell. Your problem is not the icon not showing, your problem is Cinnamon not supporting online accounts integration.
