    Thank you for writing this article! I had tried to install this software by building the dropbox in 11.4, and encountered some unresolvable deps ... for instance, the config asked me for an EARLIER version of the nautilus-extensions package than I'd on my machine ...Is there a place, by the way, where information about such softwares is available?Thank you, again.Tom Rhttp://forums.opensuse.org/images/smiliesnew/rotfl.png

    after downloading the dropbox daemon i get following messages...
    Code:
    dropbox start -i
    
    Starting Dropbox...Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "/usr/bin/dropbox", line 365, in handle_data_waiting
    self.unpack_dropbox()
    File "/usr/bin/dropbox", line 375, in unpack_dropbox
    name, i, total = one_member.next()
    File "/usr/bin/dropbox", line 267, in unpack
    if not verify_signature(StringIO.StringIO(DROPBOX_PUBLIC_KEY), signature, self.local_file):
    File "/usr/bin/dropbox", line 200, in verify_signature
    with gpgme_context([key_file]) as ctx:
    File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/contextlib.py", line 17, in __enter__
    return self.gen.next()
    File "/usr/bin/dropbox", line 184, in gpgme_context
    ctx = gpgme.Context()
    gpgme.GpgmeError: (32, 176, 'Not operational')
    how i can move this python-gpgme to working?

    Same message as Martin1986. x86_64, openSUSE 12.1-3.1.0-1.2. Installed nautilus-dropbox is 0.7.1-1.1, prompted to install gpgme before continuing install to add signature services. Installed gpgme is 1.3.1-19.1.3. I have not used any PGP signature services yet, is it looking for some missing configuration steps?

    So just for clarity until I edit the guide properly. You should remove the contrib repo (unless you need it for something else)

    Code:
    zypper rr contrib
    Add the new repo (lets call it dropbox so you know why you added it)

    Code:
    zypper ar -f http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/network/openSUSE_12.1 dropbox
    zypper ref
    (a) to accept

    Code:
    zypper in dropbox nautilus-dropbox

    Thanks! There is the solution of this problem: just remove package python-gpgme
    So I have installed the dropbox!!!
