    Default Dropbox issue after upgrading to KDE 4.13.2

    I upgraded my 13.1 Laptop to 4.13.2 last week, and just noticed that Dropbox application is encountering an issue.

    When I attempt to "Create a Public URL" via the Dolphin Action menu (installed by the Dropbox app back when it was 12.3), I get an error message "Could not find kde4-config".

    I have verified that kde4-config is loaded (in kdelibs4-core ver 4.13.2-51.1).
    Dolphin is 4.13.2-4.1

    I have verified that other Dolphin Actions, such as right click and Open-With work OK (admittedly not an exhaustive test).

    Before I start hacking at ~/.kde4 I thought I would ask for other ideas.

    Maybe reinstall Dropbox

    Dropbox ties into the GUI at various pint an up grade may beak that so reinstall should get it back

    Reinstall did not change the situation, but thanks for the suggestion

    It's been a while since I used dropbox, but I'm currently using KDE 4.13.2 as well. Anyway, I experienced the same as you report while trying the same approach

    http://clusterbleep.net/blog/2012/01...using-dolphin/

    However... (and I apologize in advance I'm on the wrong track here), things appear to have changed a bit as far as sharing goes

    Now that I've had time to play more fully, I have

    Dropbox > Generate public URL

    working as expected.

    (Of course, the shared folders/files need to be within the ~/Dropbox/Public/ directory.)

    Thanks Deano, I read thru the links you provide and am now reasonably confused.
    The Dropbox website says 1.6.0 is the current version, but the dropdown menus for KDE(Dolphin) look different than those ion their website (based on Nautilus).

    What really surprises me is that I installed KDE 4.13.2 a couple weeks back on my Desktop and had no issues.
    The Dolphin right-click menus look like the "old" sharing model, not the new.
    Perhaps this issue is date oriented(e.g. they shut off the old sharing model today?), not 4.13.2.....

    I am going to try a download from their site and see if that works.

    Didn't mean to do that.

    I actually had to reinstall dropbox before proceeding with the testing and replying.

    Forget the blog. I initially used it to create the 'Create Public URL' menu, but then realised it wasn't necessary.

    I also (briefly) installed 'dropbox-kde-servicemenu' but this too doesn't appear to be necessary either. However, it brought in sqlite and a couple of other packages. (Perhaps, this is somehow related to the changed behaviour for me.)

    No issues here
    kde 4.13.2

    I would suggest a deletion of dropbox rpm's
    Logout - In
    Delete the hidden dropbox folders, which may be as follows: .dropbox .dropbox-dist .dropbox-master

    Install dropbox as per the guide

    Yes, that makes sense too.

    Thanks, gents; I am now back in business after following caf4926's guide.

    caf4926 - you might want to refresh the guide with the recently updated (changed) URL for the KDE extras repo. I was already connected, so not an issue.

    I was a bit surprised by what loaded
    Code:
    sudo zypper in dropbox dropbox-servicemenu
    Loading repository data...
    Reading installed packages...
    Resolving package dependencies...
    
    The following 4 NEW packages are going to be installed:
      dropbox dropbox-servicemenu python-M2Crypto sqlite3 
    
    4 new packages to install.
    Overall download size: 524.3 KiB. After the operation, additional 2.0 MiB will be used.
    Continue? [y/n/? shows all options] (y): y

    (4/4) Installing: dropbox-servicemenu-0.16.1-2.1 .....................................................................[done]
    I wonder if the python and sqlite3 dependencies did not properly migrate when I upgraded to 4.13.2.......?

    Anyway, as reported, the guide works quite easily.

    Thanks!
