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 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]
uid           [ unknown] Dropbox Automatic Signing Key <>

If you can't run the dropbox@ service normally, try to create a read-only directory ~/.dropbox-dist and run again.

Some useful places for issues about Dropbox itself (not the package):

  1. Official Dropbox user feedback forum

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

@fra-san Here is a link to deb Also this page ( says that "The new desktop experience will be updated for Dropbox desktop users over the next few weeks."

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 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) 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 []

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.

For all who have issue: ImportError: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

sudo chmod 755 /opt/dropbox/

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:

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

Fix it sudo chmod 755 /opt/dropbox/
