Upgrading to Dropbox 1.0 on Ubuntu
Dropbox has to be one of my favorite services. I honestly don’t know what I would do without it.
Recently Dropbox moved up to version 1.0. Awesome! Right? Well, how do you upgrade to it in Ubuntu? The nautlius-dropbox package you installed didn’t receive an upgrade because no Dropbox repository was added to your sources. So what do we do?
Simple. Just stop Dropbox and remove the daemon.
Step 1) Close Dropbox Step 2) Open up Terminal Step 3) rm -rf ~/.dropbox-dist Step 4) Start Dropbox again from Applications->Internet->Dropbox
Let Dropbox install the proprietary daemon again, and once it’s done, you’ll be happy to see that Dropbox 1.0 is installed and running. Complete with Selective Sync!comments powered by Disqus
