I was trying to install dropbox on ubuntu 13.10
My first attempt was to follow the steps from official site:
cd ~ && wget -O - "https://www.dropbox.com/download?plat=lnx.x86_64" | tar xzf - ~/.dropbox-dist/dropboxd
Also it installed dropbox, I was not able to see the icon on the panel (I tried this post, but the icon has not appeared). In addition to this, I was not starting automatically and I needed to do
~/.dropbox-dist/dropboxd on each start.
So I uninstalled dropbox with the commands from their website and tried to follow steps described here:
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver pgp.mit.edu --recv-keys 5044912E sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://linux.dropbox.com/ubuntu precise main" sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install nautilus-dropbox
But this resulted in the following error:
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable distribution that some required packages have not yet been created or been moved out of Incoming. The following information may help to resolve the situation:
The following packages have unmet dependencies: nautilus-dropbox : Depends: dropbox but it is not going to be installed E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
Any idea how it should be solved?
