Hi! , I'm trying install dropbox on debian buster server and get this error:


b'!! (Qt:Fatal) This application failed to start because it could not find or load the Qt platform plugin "xcb".\n\nAvailable platform plugins are: xcb.\n\nReinstalling the application may fix this problem.


I apreciate your help! regards

Hi @eljaviuy, thanks for messaging the Community!

 

Have you tried re-installing the xcb plugin first prior to installing the Dropbox desktop application to see if this helps?

 

Keep me posted!

Hi @Jay thanks for your responce.

Well, I did not install the xcb plugin, I just followed the installation steps on this page:

 

dropboxwebpage/install-linux

(install dropbox with linux command line)

 

On a linux server with no graphical environment.

Okay, could you try installing the plugin if possible to see if the Dropbox service can be installed on your machine?
