I (believe) followed all the instructions here and could not finish installing Dropbox correctly. I had read in a recent post in
that the installation bug was fixed but apparently something I have done before is not permiting me to finis my installation.
I even followed the purge instructions posted in
but still could not get Dropbox to run.
When I followed the workaround and finally
typed ~/.dropbox-dist/dropboxd I got:
Traceback (most recent call last):

ImportError: /home/ale/.dropbox-dist/netifaces-0.5-py2.5-linux-i686.egg/netifaces.so: wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS32
I am running Ubuntu 12.04 on 3.2.0-26-generic kernel x86_64.
So I deleted the /.dropbox-dist/netifaces-0.5-py2.5-linux-i686.egg/ folder and now dropbox started and recognized everything.
