Since a few days my dropbox headless installation isn't running anymore on my debian system.

 

Updating it didn't solve the problem, the output afterwards was:

Found a similar issue and followed the steps to solve:

https://www.dropboxforum.com/t5/Dropbox-installs-integrations/Headless-install-on-Debian-libglapi-so...

 

now it conitnues after:

May 04 14:07:49 sp3 dropboxd[32246]: dropbox: load fq extension '/rma/home/.dropbox-dist/dropbox-lnx.x86_64-121.4.4267/PyQt5.QtWidgets.cpython-38-x86_64-linux-gnu.so'

 

But suddenly stops on startup:

 

dropbox: load fq extension '/rma/home/.dropbox-dist/dropbox-lnx.x86_64-121.4.4267/PyQt5.QtWidgets.cpython-38-x86_64-linux-gnu.so'

dropbox: load fq extension '/rma/home/.dropbox-dist/dropbox-lnx.x86_64-121.4.4267/PyQt5.QtCore.cpython-38-x86_64-linux-gnu.so'

dropbox: load fq extension '/rma/home/.dropbox-dist/dropbox-lnx.x86_64-121.4.4267/PyQt5.QtGui.cpython-38-x86_64-linux-gnu.so'

 

Anyone had that problem and a solution for it?

Ok, I would say you have resolved your issue (missing mesa library). What's wrong actually? 🤔 Are there other follow up error messages? What's the result of:

dropbox status
