I don't use the systemd service, so due to lack of time I will disown the package so that you can apply that fix if you want.

For this patch to work with systemd service, you need to update the service files /usr/lib/systemd/system/dropbox@.service and /usr/lib/systemd/user/dropbox.service by adding a line in the [Service] section:

Environment="LD_PRELOAD=/usr/local/lib/libdropbox_fs_fix.so"

Yeah, it seems like https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/dropbox-fix/ doesn't work any more, so I orphaned it. Feel free to adopt and merge it.

Sry to say but this fix seems to have stopped working today...

I tried this fix and the other dropbox-fix - none seems to be working. Since tonight dropbox is able to manually connect with my account (this has been automatic before) but after 5 seconds kicks me out again for using a non-ext4 filesystem...

sad, p.

This should install updated systemd service files.

Got it! I left a comment at https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/dropbox-fix/. Could you help on providing technical details? (e.g., what's broken)

It's not good to have two AUR packages for the same purpose, anyway.

Different upstream git repo (the other one was no longer working for me).

What's the difference of this from the dropbox-fix package?
