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,

When I pause syncing, dropbox almost always crashes after a period of time. This has been happening for some time. Anyone else?

Dropbox is now spawning 2 tray icons after bootup, and creates another one for every click you perform on any of those icons. And those icons are getting plenteous very quickly...

After 77.4.131-1 update Dropbox is using monospace font for interface, which is ugly

I've the same issue when I try to install firefox-nightly-fr :

$ gpg --recv-keys FC918B335044912E
gpg: connecting dirmngr at '/run/user/1000/gnupg/S.dirmngr' failed: Échec de l'appel IPC connect gpg: échec de réception depuis le serveur de clefs : Pas de dirmngr

Someone could help me ?

Similar to @walkindude:

gendesk: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in prepare().
Error making: dropbox

For the systemd service to be working correctly (stop and restart commands), you need to change the type from simple to forking:

I get the same error as @acdw. Adding '-f' to gendesk in PKGCONFIG worked, although I had also to install dropbox-filesystem-fix from

Why libappindicator-gtk3 for plasma? Plasma supports the StatusNotifer spec out of the box and dropbox is no GTK app.
