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 https://linux.dropbox.com/fedora/rpm-public-key.asc and import it with:

gpg --import rpm-public-key.asc

Install this package if you need to run dropbox on a non-ext4 filesystem: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/dropbox-fix/

This should work when running dropbox from the command line and as a service.

If you can't run the dropbox@ service normally, try to create a read-only directory ~/.dropbox-dist and run again. See https://gitlab.com/yan12125/aur/issues/21 for details.

If you found an issue in PKGBUILD and/or relevant packaging scripts, please open an issue at https://gitlab.com/yan12125/aur with a title starting with "dropbox:". You'll get responses faster there than on AUR.

Dropbox 64 fixes tray icon on XFCE, LXDE, MATE and Gnome. I guess more dependencies are necessary as the release note [1] mentions libappindicator. Please tell me if you got the tray icon work with extra packages and I'll add them to optdepends.

@amatriain: in my experience pgp.mit.edu is unstable. You may want to choose another keyserver or download Dropbox's public key manually (see the updated pinned comment).

I'm getting an error when importing the gpg key:

$ gpg --recv-keys 1C61A2656FB57B7E4DE0F4C1FC918B335044912E gpg: no valid OpenPGP data found.

Also when I search the key in pgp.mit.edu I get no results. Maybe it's been revoked?

Thank you @alex.forencich! I made your comment pinned.

Yeah, I suppose that's a good point, it would be possible to make a separate package that provides the .so file, the override wrapper script, and the override systemd unit file.

Regarding incompatibility with non-EXT4 filesystems: I don't think using existing "patches" [1][2] requires modifications to this package. Propose your modified PKGBUILD if you believe so.

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

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