I have two laptops, both running ubuntu 14.04 with gnome. Until a couple of weeks ago I was using dropbox on both. Now neither is able
to connect to the dropbox website - with either google-chrome or firefox. For a while I was able to continue to update my dropbox but this has now
ceased - perhaps because of my attempts to reinstall dropbox.
I ran a direct wget on the dropbox url for the 64 bit package, shows this:wget http://www.dropbox.com/download?plat=lnx.x86_64

Today a new stable Dropbox release (1.0.10) arrived. Some nice features and tons of bug fixes were introduced. The update is fairly easy:1. Stop Dropbox (right click on systray icon)2. Rename your /username/.dropbox-dist directory for backup reasons3.
whenever I start my computer, dropbox does not automatically start itself aswell. Furthermore, when I try to start it using the program launcher, nothing happens. I then tried the command line (dropbox status), which gives: Dropbox isn't running!
Naturally I want to start it using the command dropbox start, which returns:
Dropbox isn't running!
Dropbox is already running!
