fruux menubar icon

Looking for a fruux activity indicator in your menubar?

  • open "Terminal.app" (it's in /Applications/Utilities)
  • type: open "/System/Library/CoreServices/Menu Extras/Sync.menu"
  • hit "Enter"

Or even easier (Thanks, Brandon):

  • open iSync.app (it's in /Applications)
  • open iSyncs' Preferences (COMMAND+, or via Menubar)
  • enable "Show status in menubar"

The menubar icon

  • rotates when any sync client on your system (including fruux) is syncing
  • allows you to click "Synchronize Now" (syncs all sync clients on your system, including fruux)

Remove the menubar icon again?

  • Just press and hold the Apple/Command key on your keyboard and drag the icon out of the menubar
