Hi @abdossamad2003 - welcome to our Community!

If you've made sure that your device is meeting our requirements, you should be able to install the desktop app normally. 

Can you let me know if you're getting any errors and forward me a screenshot so I can get a visual of the issue at hand as well?

Thanks!

I'm not sure about the nature of the issue here @abdossamad2003. I'd reinstall the Python 3 package on that machine for starters though. 

Perhaps, @Здравко has some additional thoughts on this?

Hi @abdossamad2003,

Cent OS has RPM based package management (i.e. yum), which make it very similar to Fedora. Did you install such package either for 64-bit or 32-bit using yum? If you have installed something already, remove everything and try the following, on already downloaded RPM version (I use 64-bit version here):

cd folder/where/downloaded
sudo yum instsall nautilus-dropbox-2019.02.14-1.fedora.x86_64.rpm

What is the result? Post the entire terminal output in your next post (including command and output), in code block (</>), if something goes wrong.

Good luck.

@Walter, what about my post/question to you?! Is there any chance?

Ok, I'm assuming the install itself passed well. Run in terminal:

rm -rf ~/.dropbox
~/.dropbox-dist/dropboxd

and put the entire output in your next post.
