Debian 11 broken links

Hello all! 
I'm running Debian 11.6 on a Chromebook and can't get my (Linux) Dropbox folder to sync. The "Dropbox Headless Install" did install a local Dropbox folder, but it doesn't seem to be syncing. Without an interface, I can't tell what's going on. There is a python3 command line interface package linked at the bottom of this linux download page, but I get a 404 error. This installation guide points to the same missing python package. Any advice??

Hey @RaccoonLabs, the link to download and view the python script should be working fine now.


Can you let us know if you're still getting an error?

Hi @RaccoonLabs, thanks for bringing this to our attention.

 

Are you able to use the commands to start syncing without installing the script, as stated on this page?

 

This will help me to assist further!

Thanks for the response!
Nothing seems to happen when using the Dropbox commands, but I don't get an error message either. My folder still hasn't synced.

Thanks so much! The script is posted and is working great.

Dropbox doesn’t autostart when I log in, but I’m able to manually start it and sync everything with the CLI. Thank you!
