Monochrome Dropbbox icon

Having a NVIDIA graphic card the Dropbox icon can have an ugly black background. This is annoying when using e.g. Linux Mint with Cinnamon or MATE.

However I found a reddit post with the solution:
  1. Quit Dropbox
  2. Go into ~/.dropbox-dist/dropbox-lnx[VERSION] 
  3. Backup libGL.so.1
  4. Delete libGL.so.1
  5. ln -s /usr/lib/nvidia-[VERSION]/libGL.so.1 /home/[ACCOUNT]/.dropbox-dist/dropbox-lnx[VERSION]/
  6. Start Dropbox
Now the Dropbox icon should have a transparent background again.
