on all my computers, I can no longer perform the selective synchronization. (It is possible to change the location!)
reboot and un / relinking was not successful.
The behavior changed a few days ago, so far it was without problems.
I do not know what the reason for the changes could be.
It is necessary for a fluid work that the selective sync works correctly.

Do you need any further information?
Hey there @krabat52,
Also please let me know a bit more details of the issue, such as, are you not able to see the selective sync option within the desktop app preferences? Or can you see the options but they won't apply when you change them?
Let me know what you find - Thanks!
current sync status: everthing is done;
desktop Version: 80.3.116;
yes, I can see the icon, but they won't apply when I klick an the button »selektive Suynchr. ..) A window schpuld open, where I can select the folders, I want to synchronise on my PC / Laptop. (This worked fine, but a few day ago, as I said, it hasn’t any effect.
It seems that you're running a beta version of the desktop app, so I'd recommend downgrading to the latest stable build to see if that fixes the issue for you.
I hope this helps, let me know how it goes!
sorry, idoesn’t work.
I did this:
sudo apt-get remove nautilus-dropbox sudo apt-get remove dropbox
Then download and install
Version is still 80.3.116 like bevor.
Did you ensure to turn off the option for "Early releases" here before redownloading the desktop app to your computer?
If so, can you try downloading the latest build directly from the build's page here to see if that does the trick?
Keep me posted - Thanks!
Thanks for confirming that @krabat52!
Hmmm, that's strange indeed.
Since we confirmed that the Early releases is turned off now, would you mind just trying one last time to download the latest version from here and try running the installer again?
If this still doesn't resolve the issue, would you mind if I reached out to the email address associated with your Community profile?
Let me know - Thanks!
It works now:
cd ~ && wget -O - "https://www.dropbox.com/download?plat=lnx.x86_64" | tar xzf -
Now it is version 79.4.143
I got this message:
dropbox:10397): LIBDBUSMENU-GLIB-WARNING **: 07:17:36.850: About to Show called on an item wihtout submenus. We're ignoring it.
But nevertheless: I’m happy!
Thanks so much.
I'm glad to hear that everything is working correctly now!
In terms of the error message, it's not one that I'm familiar with. Would you mind if I reached out to the email address associated with your Community profile so that I can refer you to a specialist? Perhaps they will have a better insight into this.
In the meantime, there may be other users who can provide some more info on this and will input their suggestions here.
Let me know - thanks!
