Today when I started up my pc, Dropbox launched, as usual, but also asked to install the Dropbox daemon, which I allowed.
Then another instace of Dropbox started running. So I have two now running at the same time, as two Dropbox Icons on the Desktop panel.
Why is this?
MX Linux 18.3 (based on Debian 9)
Hi @Laureano G., thanks for joining the Community!
Currently, the Dropbox desktop application is officially supported for Ubuntu and Fedora, so the amount of troubleshooting we can provide is limited.
What happens if you attempt to run the daemon on its own? Are you able to quit one of the apps to see if this works?
Keep me posted!

Well, i restarted session and it's okay now.
I'll let you know if I have more unexpected behavior.
Thanks for your reply.
Glad to hear that it's resolved now, @Laureano G..
Enjoy the remainder of your week!
Well, the problem appears everytime I reboot.
At start up, Dropbox asks to install the Dropbox daemon (as if it wasn't already installed)
At the same time it starts.
I reply Cancel to the dialog and everything goes fine then.
But I would like to know what is it that makes Dropbox think the deamon should be installed.
