PostPosted: Mon 15 Dec 2014, 16:33    Post subject:  Dropbox still not starting  

I uninstalled the 2.10 version, deleted the .dropbox stuff from the root and home folders and deleted /opt/dropbox, and then installed mydropbox-1.2.

But I'm still getting the "Couldn't start dropbox" message! Perhaps something didn't get completely uninstalled before, because when I rebooted after uninstalling the earlier version and the files, I got a "can't find dropbox" or something like that upon booting.

Also, by the way, the dropbox-dist folder was created again in the root folder. After Dropbox wouldn't load, I tried moving it to home and linking back to root, but that didn't help. On the other hand, I found that mydropbox-1.2 did put the .dropbox folder in home with the link-back to root. And no /opt/dropbox folder was created.

You have to read carefully first post in this thread. Yesterday, I updated MyDbox and its information. I wrote about new Dropbox update specific Dbus requirement, too. All is written there (follow read-more link, in that post, and install Dbus before MyDbox). I suggest to uninstall every Dropbox-related stuff again (except "Dropbox" folder) and to follow instructions.

If you still have problems after procedure above, you could post temporary error file created by Dropbox (look at address in error window).

You were correct: I hadn't read the first entry. With Dbus loaded first, it now works!

But the new interface is annoying. It wouldn't let me choose my home drive, saying there was already a Dropbox folder there. I had to trick it by first renaming my Dropbox folder to something else, selecting the home drive for Dropbox, let it start to update, quit Dropbox, delete the new Dropbox folder, and rename my old folder to Dropbox. When I restarted Dropbox, it began happily indexing my files. (I did the above to save having to download all my files from the Dropbox server.)

"All's well that ends well." Thanks for being on top of everything!

Can you tell me if Dbus, that I compiled, works well in Tahrpup, too? I haven't tried yet.

hi Whitesnow,

it might be worth including the dropbox.py script https://www.dropbox.com/download?dl=packages/dropbox.py it allows you to control dropbox from the command line.

for instance i have a small script in my public folder.
Code:
#!/bin/sh
/usr/bin/dropbox.py puburl "$@" | xclip -i -selection clipboard

if i drag a file from my public folder onto it , i get the download link put straight into the clipboard.

Hi 666philb, Smile
I knew that script, but I never thought about its potentiality, until now. Wink
Next release of MyDbox will download that script, too.

Many thanks for sharing this useful script! Smile

Thank you very much Whitesnow Smile
Finally Dropbox works on Quirky 7.2.1 32bit using dbus-1.8.12_i686.pet from your repository and after the following command...
Code:
dbus-uuidgen > /etc/machine-id


Still there is no autostart but it is no too bad: I can start from Internet Menu.

It works fine for me in Slacko 6.3.2. I really needed Dropbox for my netbook.

Thanks for doing this!
