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

If you found an issue in PKGBUILD and/or relevant packaging scripts, please open an issue at with a title starting with "dropbox:". You'll get responses faster there than on AUR.

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

  1. Official Dropbox user feedback forum

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

Would you include this patch to allow it running on other fs ?

@netlexer: Thanks for notifying me. That should have been fixed.

Did a newer version briefly become available via the AUR and then reverted? Yay, my package manager states:

dropbox: local (63.4.100-1) is newer than AUR (62.4.103-1)

which I don't think I've seen before. And if so why?

Is it OK to keep this newer version?

@InvisibleRasta: it looks like a wrapper script calling the actual binary. There's nothing to do with this package.

@ncage: Awesome!

@InvisibleRasta: which patch did you refer? If the one mentioned by @alex.forencich - it's reported to be broken, and it patches the dropbox-cli package, not this one.

@yan1212 thanks for the reply. After much research i found out its actually a dropbox/gnome issue. It has been broken since gnome 3.28. I spelled out the details at:

would it be possible for you to add the unsupported filesystem patch to this

@ncage: most likely you need to install optional dependencies of this package - perl-file-mimeinfo and/or xdg-utils. Running dropbox from a terminal should help you diagnose the problem, too.

Everything is working except when i click "Open Dropbox Folder" menu item. I'm running gnome. Anyone have a clue?
