So, I must've installed a program and uninstalled some of it's components, cause I have an icon in the top bar which is not working and I have no clue what it is.

I've tried manually closing applications in the "System monitor" program, but I have yet to find the one causing this icon.

Anyone have a suggestion to where I should start looking?

Thank you


  • Are you using Dropbox? Also, are the usual system icons (Power, Notifications, Battery, Connection & Volume) all there and accounted for?

    It only took 1 answer.. Yes I am using dropbox and yes.. that was the one! Had no clue that Dropbox client was not working as the updates to/from this installation works fine. THANK YOU! Commented Feb 18, 2018 at 22:05
  • Guessing Dropbox was the culprit? LOL

It was Dropbox! The backend-part of the application is working fine, but the client is apparently not functioning as intended. Trying to re-install and thank you!
