No folder and app not launching on Ubuntu mate 20.04

No folder and app not launching on Ubuntu mate 20.04

Hi

I have spent hours trying different installations and I can get as far as "Caja needs restarting" but no folder in shortcuts and application doesn't run. Have removed all instances now before posting on here to avoid confusion. I woould be most grateful if somebody could advise where or what is wrong. Thanks

Hi Hannah

Thanks for your reply. I thought I had closed this enquiry as I discovered the issue and resolved it. (Yes, the PC exceeds the requirements)

What I did was to add the "indicator applet complete " and the notification appears as expected.

 

Thanks for your assistance with this

Update:

I now have Dropbox installed using Nautilus Dropbox and have a folder in Home folder and have made a bookmark to this folder. Unfortunately, the Dropbox app still won't launch from Applications and no desktop tray indicator. Any advise would be very welcome

I don't know, but, maybe it happens the same thing that makes me stop using dropbox. They don't want the OS u're using and they update the app for to make it useless with the OS.

Hey @capegraham, thanks for posting!

Have you made sure that you have the minimum requirements to run Dropbox on your computer?

If you do, try the steps here for a more advanced reinstall of the app, to see if that helps. 

Let me know how it goes!
