comment Start Dropbox on Startup
As per the comments with vasa1, the CLI install seems to have been missing this option, but if you install the deb directly, you will get the option back.

I didn't. I kept the config files and just installed the deb directly. No problems. I just tested a restart, and it is working perfectly for me. Thanks.

Thanks for the pointer, vasa1. I installed the deb and I got the startup options back in preferences. Oddly, it is still version 2.0.26 for me though.

The download link at Dropbox links to version 1.6, which was not syncing consistently for me. The CLI route gave me a later version.

I tried that. Unfortunately, it doesn't work.

I have done that. My problem is that the command described in my question does not seem to run from "Startup Applications" despite running fine in the terminal and via Alt+F2.

I felt like an idiot for a moment :) but it seems that the option doesn't exist in preferences. My General tab only has boxes for Desktop notification and LAN sync. I feel like you are right that it was there previously, but it isn't now. My version is 2.0.26 if that helps.
