    This doesn't happen for me
    Could be something related to your attempt

    Look for hidden folders:

    .dropbox and .dropbox-dist

    delete them and try again

    (I have seen this request in debian based distros such as Mint) Never had it in openSUSE

    Sorry to say so but i am totally new to openSUSE, when i right-click on the dropboxmap to delete i have a message that says: Toegang tot /home/drum/.local/share/Trash/files/Dropbox geweigerd. it means i have no acces?

    The folders I mean are in your /home/username*

    Is that where you are looking?

    Shortcut in kde is Alt+.

    Is your /home new/formatted? Or was it used with another distro?
