Fixing Dropbox status not showing in topbar (Ubuntu 11.04)

After installing the new Ubuntu 11.04 I’ve noticed that Dropbox notification icon stop showing in the status bar.
To fix this I’ve run this three commands (in the home directory):
dropbox stop
rm -r ~/.dropbox-dist
dropbox start

Now it’s working fine!

    Thanks so much, been struggling with this for the last 2 days. Suggestions on dropbox forums didn’t seem to work for me.
    Only thing I had to do differently was rather than using:

    dropbox start

    I had to use:

    dropbox start -i

    It then reinstalled the daemon and everything worked perfectly. Completely uninstalling and reinstalling dropbox (a few times) hadn’t worked.
