Thread: Problem with Dropbox on openSUSE 13.2

  1. #1

    Default Problem with Dropbox on openSUSE 13.2

    I've tried to install dropbox on openSUSE 13.2 with Gnome. It's installed with nautilus-extension-dropbox and when I do dropbox start -i it's download and unpaking daemon and everything finishing on 100%. There is no any window with entering account, no link in terminal and, consequently, no sync with dropbox in nautilus. When I do this with root account, then everything OK and nautilus-dropbox initializing with launching of nautilus as superuser and synchronisation begin at root directory, but I don't wont to do this for root. So, what problem can bee and how to sove it?
    Note: When I launching nautilus as superuser I see in terminal initializing nautilus-dropbox 1.6.2 before nautilus strarts, but when I do the same as user, nautilus starts only and no frase about initialising of nautilus-dropbox.

    May be I wrote not so correct in my first post, I just try to explain again.
    OpenSUSE 13.2 with Gnome 3.14. Dropbox version 1.6.2.
    After installing
    ~$ sudo zypper in dropbox
    So, dropbox and nautilus-extension-dropbox are installed.
    Then, I do:
    ~$ dropbox start -i
    After that daemon installing. After intalling of Dropbox daemon I do again:
    ~$ dropbox start -i
    then if some times propose me to go to the link to connect dropbox with my computer, but when I do that it just write
    Dropbox isn't resonding...
    Sometimes it just write this without proposing of any link possibilities.
    In both cases nothing happens later.
    If I do:
    ~$ sudo dropbox start -i
    Dropbox installs to the root driectory and everything works, I have synchronization of my files BUT TO THE ROOT DIRECTORY.
    If launch nautilus under root:
    ~$ gksu nautilus
    then I see
    Initializing nautilus-dropbox 1.6.2
    And in root directory see Dropbox folder which is syncing.
    If I launch nautilus under user
    ~$ nautilus
    I havn't any frases about nautilus dropbox initializing and only nautilus starts. Consequently, nothing work in this case.

    I tried to find any solution but ...
    Please help me to understand, Where problem can be and how to solve it?

    I had more or less the same problem with Dropbox. I solved it by deleting the .dropbox folders in my home dir. Then everything worked just fine.
    All the best.
