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

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]
      1C61A2656FB57B7E4DE0F4C1FC918B335044912E
uid           [ unknown] Dropbox Automatic Signing Key <linux@dropbox.com>

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.

@fra-san Here is a link to deb https://www.dropbox.com/download?dl=packages/ubuntu/dropbox_2019.02.14_amd64.deb Also this page (https://www.dropbox.com/desktop) says that "The new desktop experience will be updated for Dropbox desktop users over the next few weeks." https://help.dropbox.com/installs-integrations/desktop/desktop-application-overview

UPDATE: yes, you are right. it seems it contains "a command-line tool and a Nautilus extension that integrates the Dropbox web service with your GNOME Desktop."

@DenisBY It looks like 2019.02.04 is the latest version of nautilus-dropbox, not that of Dropbox itself.
The list of Dropbox builds at https://www.dropboxforum.com/t5/Desktop-client-builds/bd-p/101003016 confirms that the one linked in the "Source" section above (82.4.155) is the most recent stable one.

There is new version of Dropbox client available (2019.x) https://www.dropbox.com/install Could we expect AUR for this version? Thanks

Hi, The tray icon does not work well for me. It does appear, and it changes to the "syncing" icon for a short time, then goes back to normal. I cannot click on it (left/right) - no menu is ever shown, so I cannot interact with the dropbox program.

I have an issue with SVG icon provided:
I used to change default icon with the SVG icon for my Dropbox folder. Since last pacman upgrade file manager is no more able to show the SVG and thus place a blank icon in place of that.
Now, I think SVG we provide has a problem, because opening and saving it with Inkscape or LibreOffice Draw, makes it "working" again. Now, I am not an expert but size before and after that re-saving changes from 605 Bytes to 4.9 KB and it's strange... maybe we provide a malformed SVG? because also the thumbnail os SVG itself is empty but image viewer opens it correctly!
EDIT: also .desktop icon fails to load: I use gnome-shell and icon disappeared from the launcher (but I can still launch it normally)
EDIT2: here is a screenshot [https://imgur.com/a/0okULXY]

If the 'prepare' section is re-ran without first cleaning out the build directory, the gendesk command errors:

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

Please add the '-f' argument.

The "selective sync" button does not seem to do anything. Does someone else face similar issue? Seems to be a problem with the latest builds: https://www.dropboxforum.com/t5/Installs-integrations/The-selective-sync-dialog-doesn-t-show-up-on-Linux/m-p/362822#M76488

If you have message " libdropbox_apex.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory\n'] (error 3)"

Fix it sudo chmod 755 /opt/dropbox/libdropbox_apex.so
