Same here. Did the workaround but it is a workaround. With limitations...
It is really annoying.
We were considering upgrading all of our accounts into business accounts but till this is resolved we do not plan to.
It has now been more than a year and this is still not implemented. This is pretty unacceptable at this point.
What are businesses running Linux-based operating systems supposed to do when users need to access more than one account?
Workarounds are mediocre at best. I guess we'll just have to find another service to spend our money on instead.
My whole team is running Ubuntu and using both the personal and work accounts is a requirement for moving to Dropbox for Business.
My team just signed up for Dropbox for Business and a couple of us can't use it on our Ubuntu machines. It seems that this is something Dropbox is not willing to implement. I'm glad that I can influence the decision making and we'll have to look for other alternatives out there.
2018 is coming to an end and still no update announced on this issue. I have already given up on Dropbox dev team and have been running the second Dropbox instance in docker. https://valh.io/blog/Dockerize-Dropbox-on-Linux
Also, smart-sync feature is missing from the Linux client. Any word on that?
The way we work is changing. Share and discover new ways to work smarter with Dropbox in our community.Sound good? Let's get started.
