Due to more and more comments unrelated to the package itself, I decided to disable AUR comment notifications. If you believe there's really an issue in PKGBUILD and/or relevant packaging scripts, please open an issue at with a title starting with "dropbox:".

Some useful places for Dropbox issues:

  1. Official Dropbox user feedback forum

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

@parnmatt & @sl13kp

Just edit the PKGBUILD, find this line and remove the bold text. find "$pkgdir"/opt/dropbox/ -type f -exec chmod 644 {} \; chmod 755 "$pkgdir"/opt/dropbox/dropboxd chmod 755 "$pkgdir"/opt/dropbox/dropbox{,_py3}

Got the same problem as parnmatt.

I'm getting an error with the recent update; are you missing a file?

chmod: cannot access '/var/cache/pacman/pkg/dropbox25812/dropbox/pkg/dropbox/opt/dropbox/dropbox_py3': No such file or directory

chmod: impossibile accedere a '/tmp/yaourt-tmp-stefano/aur-dropbox/pkg/dropbox/opt/dropbox/dropbox_py3

If I'm not mistaken then the current pkgrel should be reset to 1 now that pkgver was upgraded to 50.4.71.

49.4.68 is announced, anyway.

BTW, @jorgicio, how did you find the new URL before it's announced?

In fact, althought no news were published, the 49.4.68 is up. I'm now in Gentoo, I maintain the dropbox package on my overlay, and that version is up.

jorgicio flagged dropbox out-of-date on 2018-05-06 for the following reason:

Version 49.4.68 was just released.

After two days, there are still no news about 49.4.68 on, and still points to 48.4.58. I guess Dropbox engineers do not consider 49.4.68 ready yet, so unflag out-of-date.

Recently I removed !upx from options as support for upx is dropped in pacman-git. If you use upx and get errors, please open a new issue at or leave a comment in

@portaloffreedom Running

QT_QPA_PLATFORM=xcb dropbox

or - using the dropbox-cli package -

QT_QPA_PLATFORM=xcb dropbox-cli start

works for me.
