Description:

As requested by users, created icon of dropbox for Humanity style theme.

Unfortunately it is not possible to change tray icons for linux dropbox client.

Took a deeper look in to the dropbox tray icon customization for linux. Turns out that for know it is not possible to simply replace .png with custom one, because tray icons are embedded somewhere in proprietary code files.
So much for not using open source, can't simply customize tray icon for your theme.

But I will try to contact dropbox team, maybe they will be kind enough to tell me how to customize tray icons.

Archive includes my two favorite sets of different size .png images (hicolor-01 and hicolor-02) and .svg source with some more variations of dropbox icon.

To install (only changes gnome menu icon, but not tray icon), extract archive and sudo copy contents of hicolor-01 or hicolor-02 folder to /usr/share/icons/hicolor/

Then do
$ sudo gtk-update-icon-cache -f /usr/share/icons/hicolor
to update icon cache.

And finally logout & login.


Enjoy, hope you find it usefull :)




Changelog:

Initial play with dropbox icon design.

So far found out that at least for now, it is not possible to change dropbox tray icon for linux client.

If the icons ar in place, but they still do not show up, most likely it is necessary to update icon cache.

Do
$ sudo gtk-update-icon-cache -f /usr/share/icons/hicolor
to update icon cache.

And finally restart or start dropbox.

Thanks for comment, I will update, the install info.

Icon of compensation, I could not get them on display in the bar. They are still the old icon from somewhere else and I do not know where. Even after the restore icon. What to do?

As I haven't used dropbox, but only been told where to find dropbox icons, I will install dropbox and check what could be the problem.
Thanks, for reporting it back!

Actually it should be possible. The client is partially opensource (and GPL'd). When you run it for the first time the proprietary code gets downloaded. I'm pretty sure it only gets used for the synchronization. The tray-icon shows before the proprietary code gets downloaded.

So the icons seem to be compiled into the source. So there's there's two ways to go about this. Replace the icons in the source or contact the devs and tell them to place the icons in the appropriate directories.

I can do the latter. But I heard that there's a new (seperate) place for tray icons now (since the latest Gnome release) and I have no idea where.

Actually I just had a look at the source. It just has the regular hicolor icon folder in it, but the small version of the icons are compiled into the binaries to make it easier for them to change the status icon. So if you replace the hicolor folder in the source and compile it, you get what you want ;)

If I got some time tomorrow, I'll try to make a .deb.

I kindle disagree. I looked at the source for nautilus-dropbox, changed all the icons, built a debian package, and nothing, still the same systray icons. The systray icons are wrapped up somewhere in the binary proprietary code. It's really kind of lame.

Okay.. here is what I just did on a blank computer:

replace icons in source. block all dropbox servers in /etc/hosts. compile and install source. logout/login.

What I get is the regular icon and now I'm sure it HAS to be somewhere in the source because at no time the proprietary could was (or could be) loaded.

The program is stored in ~/.dropbox-dist

that is where the proprietary code is downloaded to. If the icons ARE in there, we're out of luck. As I wrote above the icons SHOULD be in the source.

Thanks! For a while know I am quite busy working on my application for scholarship. When I will finish with and when time they will provide information on how to properly customize those icons, I will try to find time to create proper dropbox icon customization packs.
