Latest upgrade removes Dropbox

Postby feffer » Thu Nov 10, 2011 8:22 pm

The latest upgrade wants to remove the following:
The following packages will be REMOVED:
capplets-data dropbox libbrasero-media0 libevince3 libmetacity-private0 libnautilus-extension1
mint-meta-codecs nautilus-dropbox nautilus-gksu
Of course I don't want Dropbox removed. Will this settle out in a few days or is something else going on?

The version of Dropbox from the Mint repos is not compatible with the new nautilus 3.x, which is why it wants to remove dropbox. If you allow that to happen, then you should install nautilus-dropbox from the testing repos. This version has been updated to be compatible with all the Gnome3 goodness you have just updated to.

P.S. Don't worry about losing your settings in the dropbox uninstall, everything will be saved and exactly as you left it after you install the nautilus-dropbox package.
