after installation I am not being able to use Dropbox...after installation I got the prompt to restart nautilus..but pressing the restart button of the nautilus is not working...after signing in the browser, files are open in browser but not on the computer home drive...
I posted this question before fiddling with other options but eventually I found the answer after tinkering number of times. If the Nautilus restart does not work, just close the prompt then close the dropbox from the status bar. Reboot/ restart the computer and sign in to your dropbox account. Voila! It worked just fine.
