Hi there,

Dropbox seemed to have stopped working. So I went onto the terminal to restart it.

When I tried to restart it I got this message:

Unable to connect to Upstart: Failed to conenct to socket/com/ubuntu/upstart

I am very new to working with Linux etc so would be very grateful for your help.

Kind regards,

Ross

Hi @rosstcorbett,

You can vote up on my idea I just shared, so problems, like yours, (managing Dropbox as a server) would get softer. 😉

Need more support?
Who's talking
