[Workaround found] Dropbox settings lost

Postby tom101 on Mon Jan 28, 2013 2:48 pm

Hi,

In Mint 14 Cinammon 64 USB with persistence I am using Dropbox. It works fine, except that the configuration is lost on reboot, so I have to enter email address and password etc every time. Does anyone know a way to fix this? I can see that the settings in .dropbox in my home folder are updated every time, but then I suppose they must be ignored or overwritten by dropbox.

Thanks,

Tom

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

In case anyone is ever interested, I found a workaround for this. I copied the .dropbox folder to /media/<username>/casper-rw and made a symlink from the original location of that folder in /home/<username> I don't really know why that helps, but it seems to. I got the idea from this forum post
