Dropbox on Ubuntu 12.10 has a problem where the status always indicates
According to the account tab on my preferences dialog I am running 1.4.12. In the release notes from 1.4.20 Dropbox says they have fixed this problem.
But how to I update to that version? I've tried running
sudo dropbox update, but that just throws an error indicating that the dropbox command doesn't support the update argument. I've installed dropbox using the dropbox deb file instead of the normal 12.10 software center one.
