Dropbox Icon 10.04

The dropbox icon no longer appears on my desktop.

I can run the programme using CLI but would love to have the icon back on start up.

Help please.

In Ubuntu you can right-click on the desktop, click "Create Launcher" then type "Dropbox" into name and "/usr/bin/dropbox" into the command

The launcher did not work. So I went back to basics and reinstalled Dropbox from the website.

Now it decides to work!

Thanks for the suggestion though - it will come in useful I am sure for something else.
