[SOLVED] Can't see MegaSync & Dropbox anymore

Post by overkill22 » Tue Oct 16, 2018 11:18 am

Yesterday was only MegaSync, today also Dropbox.
The services are supposed to autostart at the startup, but they don't appear in the panel.
trying dropbox running doesn't give anything.
I tried to stop and start the service, nothing.
i tried to unistall and reinstall again. nothing.
same goes for MegaSync.

and not sure if it's related, but I can't find Mega anymore in the menu. I thing last time was there.

Both are disappeard for no apparent reason.

I solved with this workaround.

Dropbox
Uncheck the startup option on dropbox (right click on the panel icon > preferences > uncheck start dropbox on system startup).
Go in "startup applications" delete the dropbox launcher.
Create a new one with command dbus-launch dropbox.

MegaSync
Go in "startup applications" select the megasync launcher
Edit the command to dbus-launch megasync.

I don't know exactly what's the difference, but it's working for me.

I have no idea why, but this happens with a number of applications that launch automatically.

Your solution (dbus-launch) works for other things, too, like JetBrains Toolbox.
