Run the following command in case you got errors during "Verifying source file signatures with gpg..."

gpg --recv-keys 1C61A2656FB57B7E4DE0F4C1FC918B335044912E

Alternatively, you can download Dropbox's public key from and import it with:

gpg --import rpm-public-key.asc

You can check whether keys are successfully imported or not using the output of gpg -k. You should find something like this:

pub   rsa2048 2010-02-11 [SC]
uid           [ unknown] Dropbox Automatic Signing Key <>

If you can't run the dropbox@ service normally, try to create a read-only directory ~/.dropbox-dist and run again.

Some useful places for issues about Dropbox itself (not the package):

  1. Official Dropbox user feedback forum

  2. Arch Linux discussion places:, #archlinux on,

@yan12125, wow, you're awesome. thanks! Perhaps this should be added to depends line?

I had the "connecting" issue with tray icon too. And I confirm that installing core/dbus-daemon-units instead of core/dbus-broker-units fixed the issue

OK so i am having an issue with this package. While the flatpak package works perfectly, giving lots of options when you right click on the taskbar icon, this package constantly says "connecting" even after you've connected your dropbox account. It must be some sort of dependency issue. Any way to fix?

I got an email from dropbox about "You're invited to download the Dropbox desktop app". Is this the same thing?

That email points me to .

Randomly getting stuck on connecting without any out of the ordinary logs, both during runtime and sometimes even right after starting the app. Is there any workaround?

Is there a way to get dropbox to work with dbus-broker? Or is reverting to debs-daemon the only option for now?

@bauminao It may not be your issue but I noticed after upgrading to dbus-broker the notification icon menu would always be stuck on "Connecting", even though in the background it was connected. Some kind of incompatibility between Dropbox and dbus-broker. Reverting to dbus-daemon fixed it.

Is there a problem currently on dropbox? My Client cannot connect (and update data). I do not exactly know when this started, but at least "today" it is stuck on "connecting" without any additional message.

Tried to re-init everything. Icon shows a second the "sync"-symbol but then nothing more happens.

dropbox.desktop already exists. Use -f as the first argument to overwrite it.

Refuses to build automatically in an environment where dropbox.desktop has been preserved.

I have not experienced any crashing, and do not have pyqt5 installed.
