I am experiencing a weird bug with Dropbox v32.4.23 on Gnome. I add dropbox.desktop to ~/.config/autostart/ in order to get it to autostart (either via Gnome Tweak Tool or manually copying it from /usr/share/applications). Whenever I start Dropbox, it deletes the dropbox.desktop file from ~/.config/autostart/.

I have also noticed that the option "Start Dropbox on system startup" from Dropbox preferences is always unticked when Dropbox starts, even if I have enabled it previously. Potentially this is to blame? Anyone else experiencing this?

https://www.dropbox.com/download?plat=lnx.x86_64 points to 31.4.24 yesterday, yet it changed back to 30.4.23 this morning. I believe that's because 31.4.24 has big problems on Windows [1]. I synced my files on several Arch boxes with 31.4.24 today and see no issues, so I decide to stay with 31.4.24. If you got problems with 31.4.24 while 30.4.23 is fine, please tell me and I'll downgrade this package.

Update: Dropbox just releases 31.4.25 and https://www.dropbox.com/download?plat=lnx.x86_64 points to this version. I guess they've fixed the problem.

I unflagged it as the official download link still points to dropbox-lnx.x86_64-30.4.22.tar.gz, and there's no news about 30.4.23 on Desktop client builds announcements [1]. I suspect it not a real stable version.

@timofonic: how did you get those URLs? Any clue that's a stable release?

@LukeLR fakeroot is in group base-devel, which is an implied dependency of makepkg.

Since installation requires fakeroot, it should be listed as a dependency.

Hello, Dropbox's server has changed something so that update.sh is broken. I have to change this line:

grep -P '^Location:'

into

grep -iP '^Location:'

Although that script is not directly related to this package, it's useful for those who want to build latest dropbox packages locally. Could you consider fixing update.sh?

See https://www.dropbox.com/help/security/official-domains if concerned about domain change.

Dropbox uses a new URL scheme for the latest version (23.4.19):

$ curl --head "https://www.dropbox.com/download?plat=lnx.x86_64" | grep 'Location:'
% Total % Received % Xferd Average Speed Time Time Time Current
Dload Upload Total Spent Left Speed
0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 --:--:-- --:--:-- --:--:-- 0
Location: https://clientupdates.dropboxstatic.com/dbx-releng/client/dropbox-lnx.x86_64-23.4.19.tar.gz

Could you change it? As mentioned below, dropboxusercontent is not so trustyworthy.

My Dropbox is 21.4.25., out of date. I have a file called dropbox-update-22.4.24.tar.gz in .dropbox.cache . How can I make Dropbox update?

Notes: I have dropbox-cli and I always run Dropbox in Firejail like firejail dropbox.
