NOTE: There is an updated Dropbox installation guide available on the wiki, see: http://crunchbanglinux.org/wiki/howto/h up_dropbox-----First off, what is Dropbox?

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!
