My i3status shows a Dropbox icon by default -- is there a way to disable this in i3status.conf?

The tray icons are handled by i3bar and have nothing do do with i3status. (i3status only creates text status messages).

You can disable all tray icons by setting tray_output none in the bar{} section(s) of your i3 configuration (see section "Tray Output" in the User's Guide)

bar {
    tray_output none

If you want to disable just the Dropbox icon there are two ways, that depend on your preferences and are not really i3 specific:

  1. You want Dropbox to run but do not like the icon: This can only be done from within Dropbox settings, see if there is an option for that.
  2. You do not care about Dropbox at all: Do not run Dropbox. If it is started from within the i3 configuration, remove the corresponding exec statement. Else you will have to go looking from where it is being started.
