I have an issue with Dropbox on my main PC. The auto-upgrade had been hanging for days, so I tried to manually upgrade to the latest version (10.4.26) following the instructions on the Dropbox site. But now Dropbox won't start properly.
Rather, I'm stuck at the "downloading daemon" dialog which keeps reappearing again and again. I never get the tray icon, and here's the output of the command line:
Code: Select all
daniel@m6400 ~ $ dropbox status Dropbox isn't running! daniel@m6400 ~ $ dbus-launch dropbox start Starting Dropbox...Traceback (most recent call last): File "dropbox/client/main.py", line 58, in <module> File "dropbox/client/aggregation.py", line 22, in <module> File "dropbox/sqlite3_helpers.py", line 48, in <module> File "dropbox/fatal_db_exception.py", line 5, in <module> File "arch/__init__.py", line 26, in <module> File "arch/linux/util.py", line 30, in <module> File "dropbox/fsutil.py", line 38, in <module> File "dropbox/infinite/__init__.py", line 26, in <module> File "dropbox/linux/version.py", line 77, in <module> File "dropbox/linux/version.py", line 72, in _get_version ValueError: need more than 2 values to unpack The Dropbox daemon is not installed! Run "dropbox start -i" to install the daemon
I badly need to restore a working Dropbox! TIA for any advice.
Best regards, Daniel
