After booting up a popup screen tells me Dropbox did not install correctly but it is lurking somewhere. To install properly I first have to delete the incorrect install. I'm using latest Ubuntu.

This is from Dropbox help page:

$ sudo apt-get remove dropbox; rm -rvf ~/.dropbox ~/.dropbox-dist
$ rm -rv ~/Dropbox

Package 'dropbox' is not installed, so not removed –  endolith May 1 at 23:01

Try this command in a terminal:

sudo apt-get remove --purge nautilus-dropbox
