Proprietary daemon and python-gpgme

I tried that, and get "Unable to locate package python-gpg." 
In the Mint Synaptic Package manager, python-gpg is not listed, but python-gpgme is, and it was already installed.

Hi

Nearly every time I boot Linux Mint 19.1 (based on Ubuntu 18.04) I get the following dialog message:

python-gpg(python-gpgme for Ubuntu 16-10 and lower) is not installed, we will not be able to verify binary signatures.

Running  dpkg -l |grep python-gpg   indicates python-gpg is installed

ii python-gpg 1.10.0-1ubuntu2 amd64 Python interface to the GPGME GnuPG encryption library (Python 2)

If I click on OK or Cancel, it doesn't matter which, Dropbox works normally. I get the Dropbox icon, it syncs and as far as I can tell, it's working as it should. However clicking on "Don't show this again" does not work. I still get the message the next time I boot.

How do I get rid of the message? It's annoying.

I installed python-gpg and Dropbox loads up without the warning

sudo apt-get install python-gpg

(from Dennnis on Page 1 of this thread.  It worked for me too.)

I tried purging (sudo apt purge python-gpg) python-gpg then reinstalling. Same problem. I still get the popup. Strange thing about it, about every 5 or 6 boots, I don't get the popup. python-gpg is installed and is the current version in the repository.

dpkg -l | grep python-gpg

Hi everybody,

That's a Dropbox control script bug, I have signaled about long time ago, but seems nobody take care about, for long time. One other simple workaround is turn off "Start Dropbox on system startup" and start it by hand every time.

Hope this cast some light.

I'm using Ubuntu 18.04 LTS. It works for me!

sudo apt-get install python3-gpg
