I used to have a perfectly good working DropBox account on my Ubuntu 10.04 LTS computer. Somewhere along the chain of "sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get upgrade" over the past year, my DropBox suddenly stopped working. Instead, I see Ubuntu One stuff on the menus in Nautilus instead of DropBox.
So, I did "apt-get --purge remove nautilus-dropbox", and then went to DropBox.com to download the deb file and reinstall it again.
But no dice. I get the DropBox icon in my "systray", and clicking it opens ~/Dropbox folder, but it does not sync with DropBox and rightclicking Nautilus does not show me menu items for Dropbox. Instead, I see items for Ubuntu One sharing.
I like Ubuntu One really only for the music purchasing because I am guessing that it helps Canonical.com pay Ubuntu's light bills. But I'm not interested in anything else with Ubuntu One besides that -- not interested in Ubuntu One offsite file storage. I really just want my Dropbox sync with Nautilus to start working again.
How do I fix this back so that Dropbox syncs with Nautilus again?
