Dropbox & wicd [solved]

Hi,

I'm using dropbox and wicd. I'd like dropbox to be started only after a connection is up, so I have created the following script in /etc/wicd/scripts/postconnect/ directory

#!/bin/bash

LANG=$LOCALE
su -c '/usr/bin/dropboxd &' my_user_name

(off course I created another one in /predisconnect to stop it)

Dropbox is started (and files synced to my pc) but tray icon and desktop notifications aren't shown. If I open a terminal and run dropboxd I get both tray icon and notifications.

I'm a bit confused. Any suggestion?

Re: Dropbox & wicd [solved]

When started by wicd, dropbox does not know which X display to use. Try using:

#!/bin/bash

LANG=$LOCALE
su -c 'DISPLAY=:0 /usr/bin/dropboxd &' my_user_name
