Hi I've installed and signed into Dropbox, but without a system tray icon (since recent Gnome decided to remove the whole system tray), there doesn't appear to be any ability to adjust the settings of the application. Is there a way to do this?

I'd mostly like to know how users of Dropbox on Fedora 27 are currently using it?

I read here that Gnome 3.26 has file manager integration with nextcloud and nextcloud has integration with Dropbox. Maybe I misunderstood. However I cannot find how to configure it so it integrates with the file manager. Maybe dropbox isn't using the new method yet?

I am using the Gnome-Addon TopIcons Plus to see the status icons of Dropbox, Seafile, Selinux-Alert and others in the top bar. I think that might be what you are looking for.

(Sidenote: The older addon Topicons stopped working for me, I'd suggest removing it and switching to TopIcons Plus if you have it installed.)

You might have to logout/login to see all the icons.
