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,

mksrcinfo is old and defunct but still being used on this package. This means some fields like pgp keys don't show up in the srcinfo even though they should.

Please use makepkg --printsrcinfo instead.

I get the following error when trying to install:

dropbox.desktop already exists. Use -f as the first argument to gendesk to overwrite.

It's during the prepare() stage of installation. It aborts the install.

Download issue fixed

Here you have my forked package as I said before:

The other one is not maintained by me.

Not possible to install, something is wrong with the download link:

==> ERROR: Error during download Aborting... :: Unable to build dropbox - makepkg exited with code: 1

Not installing: get error as follows.

curl: (22) The requested URL returned error: 403 ==> ERROR: Failure while downloading Aborting... ==> ERROR: Makepkg was unable to build dropbox.

@wooque I wrote some time ago a fork of this package that always download the latest version of Dropbox, unfortunately it was removed from AUR and I can't find it on my work PC. But, I found this project in github that use the same idea. With it, you can install always the latest version:
