@Kozmik: Thanks! I added it to optional dependencies.

xdg-utils should probably be added as a dependency, as without it Dropbox won't open my browser to let me log in unless I set the BROWSER environment variable manually.

@coxackie: I can confirm the same issue on LXQt - seems a dropbox bug. A workaround is rename the startup file in ~/.config/autostart/ from dropbox.desktop to something else.

Technically, dropbox checks a preference item `startupitem` when it's started, and ~/.config/autostart/dropbox.desktop is deleted if `startupitem` is not set.

I am experiencing a weird bug with Dropbox v32.4.23 on Gnome. I add dropbox.desktop to ~/.config/autostart/ in order to get it to autostart (either via Gnome Tweak Tool or manually copying it from /usr/share/applications). Whenever I start Dropbox, it deletes the dropbox.desktop file from ~/.config/autostart/.

I have also noticed that the option "Start Dropbox on system startup" from Dropbox preferences is always unticked when Dropbox starts, even if I have enabled it previously. Potentially this is to blame? Anyone else experiencing this?

yan12125 commented on 2017-08-04 16:27 points to 31.4.24 yesterday, yet it changed back to 30.4.23 this morning. I believe that's because 31.4.24 has big problems on Windows [1]. I synced my files on several Arch boxes with 31.4.24 today and see no issues, so I decide to stay with 31.4.24. If you got problems with 31.4.24 while 30.4.23 is fine, please tell me and I'll downgrade this package.

Update: Dropbox just releases 31.4.25 and points to this version. I guess they've fixed the problem.

I unflagged it as the official download link still points to dropbox-lnx.x86_64-30.4.22.tar.gz, and there's no news about 30.4.23 on Desktop client builds announcements [1]. I suspect it not a real stable version.

@timofonic: how did you get those URLs? Any clue that's a stable release?

@LukeLR fakeroot is in group base-devel, which is an implied dependency of makepkg.

LukeLR commented on 2017-07-16 07:06

Since installation requires fakeroot, it should be listed as a dependency.

Hello, Dropbox's server has changed something so that is broken. I have to change this line:

grep -P '^Location:'


grep -iP '^Location:'

Although that script is not directly related to this package, it's useful for those who want to build latest dropbox packages locally. Could you consider fixing
