Yeah. Width needs to use something other that -w. Like -wd?
Dropbox is out-of-date in Manjaro repository, on AUR it is up-to-date, is there a method to send a notification to the Manjaro building team at every update of this package? Otherwise, it will always be out-of-date.
Doesn’t Dropbox update itself? That is, not through your package manager? So I am on v34.4.22, and I have never noticed it in my pacman updates, yet I think I am current.
KDE is annoying the hell out of me, or is it just me
Updating it now. I don’t know of a way for automatic notifications. Anyway afaik there are updates very often, so we should just rebuild it every now and then - I just admit I didn’t think of it for a while
If it’s in the AUR, we can watch for updates to the PKGBUILD there (e.g. “enable notifications”).
But the question is what of our profiles use dropbox?
Looking good, I’ll use Teklad’s source for spacefm since the original fork seems abandoned.
Yes, that’s a valid point. It’s just a commonly used package - although the same would apply to something like skype/skypeforlinux wich are also not in official repos… and maintenance for all of those has always been very reliable in the AUR.
Yeah, and I hate that behavior, because it is not under my control, so I sandboxed it with
firejail, this way it can only read and write to the path I choose.
Anyway, I think that it is a good idea to leave only in the AUR these (partly or completely) proprietary applications, like
skype in @oberon’s example.
Not that I would know of. It certainly doesn’t for me. Maybe you simply have the AUR package installed? Or installed it in a different way?
I only install it through Octopi, from the main repos. But, this is interesting. Pacman and Dropbox seem to disagree on which version is running.

I have no idea at this moment what is going on there …
What’s the content of your /opt/dropbox/VERSION ?
$ cat /opt/dropbox/VERSION 31.4.24
$ ls $HOME/.dropbox-dist dropboxd dropbox-lnx.x86_64-34.4.22 VERSION $ cat $HOME/.dropbox-dist/VERSION 34.4.22 $ ps x | grep dropbox 944 ? Sl 0:08 /home/mparillo/.dropbox-dist/dropbox-lnx.x86_64-34.4.22/dropbox /newerversion start 5465 pts/1 S+ 0:00 grep dropbox
Matching the Dropbox Preferences GUI.
Chrome 61 upgrade - App doesn't open
Is it possible that dropbox installs in
Yes, as soon as it starts Dropbox tries to update itself installing a binary in
$HOME and executing it instead of the one in
I don’t know if it is possible to deactivate this “feature”.
