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.

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

You need to:

chmod go+r libdropbox_apex.so

in order to start dropboxd.

@wooque Indeed. Sorry. Ok, it works now. Thank you!

wooque commented on 2019-09-07 11:33

as servimo said

sudo chmod 755 /opt/dropbox/libdropbox_apex.so

will fix the issue

Tio commented on 2019-09-07 11:15

I am using Manjaro Gnome. So, what can I do?

servimo commented on 2019-09-07 11:12

I just changed the permissions of "libdropbox_apex.so" and it is working. It's permissions was to only root could read or write.

After the last update it doesn't work anymore:

Same problem as @wooque. The issue is that apex._apex.cpython-37m-x86_64-linux-gnu.so depends on libdropbox_apex.so that cannot be loaded even if it is available in the same directory.
