Thread: Dropbox doesn't start after download his deamon because a Nvidia lib

    Talking Dropbox doesn't start after download his deamon because a Nvidia lib

    Hi, I have just found, after 3 days, that
    Dropbox try to load a DRI lib
    that don't work with NVidia proprietary driver.

    I hope that this solution can give more visibility now for many people needs that.
    Simple solution is to rename
    ~/.dropbox-dist/dropbox-lnx.x86_64-19.4.12/libGL.so.1

    The problem is hide near some layer of software and no logs can help and also delete config dirs or change version can't help.

    Just readed here:
    https://www.braz.pro.br/blog/conheci...Speed=noscript
    about
    DRI error with SIGSEGV
    and "Fatal Python error" with Segmentation signal
    when Dropbox try to load "swrast_dri.so"

    The problem seem to relay into KDE5 with NVIDIA drivers.

    PS: Please share the problem / workaround on Dropbox site because I try to write there but seem that I have to less power to do this.

    The day after Dropbox restart to not start!

    In many forum people say about swrast_dri.so because in debug is the last line before Dropbox crash.
    But the real problem is a step before in
    ~/.dropbox-dist/dropbox-lnx.x86_64-19.4.12/libGL.so.1

    You can delete / rename that file
    or create a link to the correct file in the system as
    --> /usr/X11R6/lib64/libGL.so.1

    But you have to redo every time dropbox updates itself. (without advertise)

    Today I realize that this dropbox directory was changed in
    ~/.dropbox-dist/dropbox-lnx.x86_64-9001.1002.75
    NewVersion!

    I suspect that one possible "definitive" solution is to
    change the autostart of Dropbox
    from the standard that autoupdates
    to simply start deamon in current version: "dropboxd"

    Thank you very much for your insight. In my case, after a whole afternoon lost checking what was going on, I came up with your post.
    Great.
