Recover the Jianguoyun Tray Icon in Ubuntu 18.04


I cannot find the Jianguoyun (Nutstore) icon in the top tray after it runs. Here is a quick fix.

I primarily use Jianguoyun to synchronize files with collaborators in China, since Dropbox is banned by China GFW.

There is no icon shown in the tray on the top of the screen after I run the Jianguoyun (also known as Nutstore) cloud drive. So you get trouble when you want to change the settings.


The latest Gnome discards the old version system tray. However, Jianguoyun still uses the old version. We need another extension to add the old system tray icons.




If Jianguoyun updates their linux app in the future, this post will not work. I may update the post at that time.

2019.03.09 Update

I installed Fedora 29 Workstation recently. I could not find the Jianguoyun icon after I tried the above-mentioned solution. The new solution is to login to the Gnome Xorg at the user login stage. Also, make sure all the dependencies are met. Double check:

sudo yum install glib2-devel gtk2-devel nautilus-devel gvfs libappindicator-gtk3  python2-gobject
