System tray icons not showing in teamviewer

Hi folks, I am accessing a linux box via teamviewer and I’ve noticed that some system tray icons (dropbox, gdrive) do not show up.


This is what I see when accessing the linux box via teamviewer, there should be icons there for dropbox and gdrive.

Both dropbox and gdrive services are already running

ps -ef |grep gdrive

114261  113543  2  /opt/GDrive/gdrive

ps -ef |grep dropbox

113644  113543  0 dropbox -session 2a13a0dd4-7369

After some search on google I landed on the following page. It says that for gnome DE one should install an extension (ApppIndicator) to support status icons.

I’m using xfce but from a quick look at installed software it seems that I’m using libappindicator-gtk3

community/libappindicator-gtk3 12.10.0.r296-1 (52.6 KiB 351.0 KiB) (Installed)
    Allow applications to extend a menu via Ayatana indicators in Unity, KDE or Systray (GTK+ 3 library)

Yet, I can’t seem to figure out how to get the status icons to show in system tray. Any ideas?
