How To Install "DropBox"?

Hi,

Trying to install DropBox, but it does not install?:
(I think I did import the key, but it’s not working)


FAILED

Error: Failed to build dropbox

What is the output of gpg -k | grep dropbox?

Have you seen:

gpg -k | grep dropbox  1 ✘  18s 
uid [ unknown] Dropbox Automatic Signing Key linux@dropbox.com

I tried above already, it’s not working

I tried building from the source, but that does not work either:

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables NAUTILUS_CFLAGS
and NAUTILUS_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.

Sorry, I tried that and I still can’t install DropBox

If you really can’t import the key then you can always use the flatpak version of Dropbox

Hi,

I enabled Flatpack in Add/Remove software and rebooted.

I downloaded below:

I then double-clicked on that file and it opens Add/Remove Software,
but then nothing show in it?

Need help.

Jesse

What was the output of the commands you tried?

Nevermind - I got it working (had to install “KDE Discover”

Simply search in Pamac after you enable Flatpak support (I think Pamac needs a restart).

You got what working? I unmarked your “solution” as installing Discover has nothing to do with installing Dropbox from the AUR. Neither does installing a Flatpak or Snap.

So do we. Help us help you. Answer questions and stop doing things on your own without telling us.
