I have tried reinstalling & restarting dropbox on all my linked devices but it still says ïndexing" The smart sync & selective sync functions on the preferances freeze and dont respond when he click them. I have tried Fix permissions also to no avail.

Hi, I have the same problem. I am using Ubuntu Linux and its unusable in all my devices.

 

I even tried removing the Dropbox folder completly and Selectively Sync file by file but once I hit a file it wont sync, Selective Sync never responds again and the dropbox process just goes to 100% and never wakes up again.

 

Its most likely a bug in Dropbox ubuntu version.

 

Its unusable enough that I am cancelling my Dropbox subscription at the end of the month.
