Thread: Cannot run dropbox in opensuse 13.1

  1. #1

    Default Cannot run dropbox in opensuse 13.1

    Even though I've installed dropbox in opensuse 13.1 (software.opensuse.org: Search),
    I cannot run it by launching Applications/Recently installed/dropbox, nothing happened after I press Dropbox button.


    Weird thing is that Process 1417 belongs to dropbox (I saw that in system activity), but I just cannot see the dropbox (both the Folder where my files are stored and the application itself).
    Anyone can help ?

    Hi,

    did you install dropbox only or did you also install dropbox-servicemenu (I installed both and have the dropbox icon in kicker)?

    I can only run dropbox in konsole,


    <<
    Icy@linux-68vg:~> dropbox start
    Dropbox is already running!
    Icy@linux-68vg:~> dropbox help
    Dropbox command-line interface

    commands:

    Note: use dropbox help <command> to view usage for a specific command.

    status get current status of the dropboxd

    stop stop dropboxd
    running return whether dropbox is running
    start start dropboxd

    ls list directory contents with current sync status
    autostart automatically start dropbox at login

    Icy@linux-68vg:~> dropbox ls

    Icy@linux-68vg:~> dropbox running
    Icy@linux-68vg:~> dropbox ls

    Hi,

    I looked around and found some stuff you might want to see. That said, I think you need to run;
    Code:
    dropbox start -i
    I skimmed the documents below, for KDE, and I think that will run an installer, to set up dropbox accounts although I do not have it installed and have not used it.

    also

    good luck,

    :also may be important:

    one click install nautilus

    software.opensuse.org: Install package openSUSE:13.1 / nautilus-dropbox

    Hey, you would not believe this:
    <
    Icy@linux-68vg:~> dropbox start -i
    Dropbox isn't running!
    Dropbox is already running!
    Icy@linux-68vg:~> sudo dropbox start -i
    Starting Dropbox...
    Dropbox is the easiest way to share and store your files online. Want to learn more? Head to https://www.dropbox.com/

    In order to use Dropbox, you must download the proprietary daemon.
    Note: python-gpgme is not installed, we will not be able to verify binary signatures. [y/n] y
    Downloading Dropbox... 34%

    >
    hen I manually install python-gpgme by Yast, yast tells me that I should install KDouBan FM in the same time, KDouBanFM is a popular online music player, and it runs perfectly, which is a bonus surprise.


    But question is that nautilus-dropbox is for Gnome desktop environment, isn't it? But I'm using KDE, so I installed dolphin-plugin.
    Seems I cannot download it tonight!
    Thanks bro!

    Hi,

    I am glad it worked out for you.

    For the record it looks to me like that is the component/language-extentsion (python-gpgme) which keeps your files secure.
    You may want to investigate that further. That is, even if you installed it and its working well (dropbox).

    But question is that nautilus-dropbox is for Gnome desktop environment, isn't it? But I'm using KDE, so I installed dolphin-plugin.
    Seems I cannot download it tonight!
    Thanks bro!
    Honestly I am not sure, but I think you are correct so that might be irrellevant. On the KDE directions I saw, though, I didn't see a mention of dolphin-plugins.
