Dropbox update for multiple partitions

Dropbox update for multiple partitions

Philippe E.
Explorer | Level 3

I have several partitions on my PC each with a different Linux distro on each. I first installed dropbox on, say, linux1. Then I move .dropbox-dist in /opt and the Dropbox folder in /data. /opt and /data are on a partition seen from each of my Linuxes. So I'm able to use dropbox with a single installation and with a single data folder.

My problem is for updates. When dropbox updates itself, it creates a local .dropbox-dist for the current user of the current Linux. I have to remove the .dropbox-dist in /opt then move the new $HOME/.dropbox-dist in /opt. If I don't do so, each Linuxes will update and create its own .dropbox-dist.

Is it possible change the default location of .dropbox-dist?

Thank's

I don't want Dropbox to be lauched automatically

Philippe E.

I'm using Linux (Debian with xfce). Each time Dropbox is updated, Dropbox is automatically launched at boot time, what I don't want to, even if this option is not ticked in the Dropbox settings. How can I get rid of this?

Thanks

Hi Matthieu1,
Thanks for your attention to my problem.

I sent an email to the support yesterday.

I made some experiments today. Each time Dropbox is launched, some parameter (I don't know which one nor how) set Dropbox as "autostart". And it remains as this even if this opton is not tick in the Dropbox parameters.
