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 https://github.com/yan12125/aur with a title starting with "dropbox:".

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jorgicio flagged dropbox out-of-date on 2018-05-06 for the following reason: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 https://www.dropboxforum.com/t5/Desktop-client-builds/bd-p/101003016, and https://www.dropbox.com/download?plat=lnx.x86_64 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 I guess Dropbox engineers do not consider 49.4.68 ready yet, so unflag out-of-date.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 https://github.com/yan12125/aur or leave a comment in https://github.com/yan12125/aur/issues/20

@portaloffreedom Running

QT_QPA_PLATFORM=xcb dropbox

or - using the dropbox-cli package -

QT_QPA_PLATFORM=xcb dropbox-cli start

works for me.

Dropbox doesn't run on Wayland. Tried to force the xcb platform but it's completely ignoring my commands. Here is my terminal output:

!! (Qt:Fatal) This application failed to start because it could not find or load the Qt platform plugin "wayland".

Available platform plugins are: xcb.

Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.

@gj545rndmu take a look at the pinned comment:

Stupid question, but what do you mean with the last commit message "correct dependencies (closes #16)"? Is there something like a bugtracker?

also having problems with the tray icon -- using gnome ... I have to kill the dropbox process and restart it to get the icon to present itself. also cannot check the box to have dropbox start automatically -- it does start automatically but not with the tray icon.
