It seems Dropbox is not really compatible with Loki.

Dropbox runs but the icon does not show in slingshot even when using the trick we used in Freya: env XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP=Unity dropbox start

Also there are no Dropbox icons nor Dropbox menu in Files !

Is it possible to fix this ?

I recommend this script https://github.com/zant95/elementary-dropbox. Works like a charm.

From the script https://github.com/zant95/elementary-dropbox, I gathered I just needed to add QT_STYLE_OVERRIDE=''

so the complete line to add in the autostart applications (Parameters => Applications => Startup) is:

env XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP=Unity QT_STYLE_OVERRIDE='' dropbox start

And uncheck the "startup at launch" option, from dropbox application.

WATCH OUT for the single quote in the command as double quote will generate a silent error (Loki bug).

And dropbox indicator works fine !

I installed Caja Dropbox from the app store and added it to my apps at start up and then switched the slider to on.
