Install Dropbox on Xfce Error - no dropbox file or directory?

Install Dropbox on Xfce Error - no dropbox file or directory?

pmc802
Explorer | Level 3

Hey All,

Just trying to install Dropbox on my install of Xfce and I am getting an error message that points to a file with the information below.  It appears to be looking for a home/pmc802(myuser)/Dropbox folder that apparently was never created in my install steps?  Not sure what to do next.  Can I just create a folder called Dropbox under my user name (recognizing it would be empty may not help anything)?  Maybe there is a different error occuring that I am not realizing?

 

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks!
