Hello everybody!

It is about a week dropbox not starting.

I unistalled and tried to emerge again. I've tried any hint 'n tip i've found but i couldn't manage to make it work.
(i use KDE)
Installing
Code:

 eix -I dropbox
[I] net-misc/dropbox
     Available versions:  34.3.19^ms 35.4.20^ms[1] 36.4.22^ms[1] (~)37.3.28^ms 37.4.29^ms[1] 38.4.27^ms[1] 39.4.49^ms[1] {X +librsync-bundled selinux PYTHON_TARGETS="python2_7"}
     Installed versions:  39.4.49^ms[1](09:11:49 24/11/17)(X librsync-bundled -selinux PYTHON_TARGETS="python2_7")
     Homepage:            http://dropbox.com/

[1] "jorgicio" /var/lib/layman/jorgicio


I've tried both jorgicio overlay and portage tree package 37.3.28 but nothing changed.


When installing net-misc/dropbox
and run first time in console i get this
Code:

$ dropbox
dropbox: locating interpreter

dropbox: initializing

dropbox: python initialized

dropbox: setting args

dropbox: load fq extension '/opt/dropbox/PyQt5.QtPrintSupport.so'
dropbox: load fq extension '/opt/dropbox/PyQt5.QtDBus.so'



and it freeze there with this in the /tmp

Code:

 $cat dropbox-antifreeze-Y2Mmg1

dropbox: logging to /tmp/dropbox-antifreeze-Y2Mmg1

i kill it and try again with same results.


Then i install

Couldn't start Dropbox.
This is usually because of a permissions error. Storing your home folder on a network share can also cause an error.

I experienced something similar some time ago. I was trying to run Dropbox for the first time on a new Gentoo installation, and I couldn't make it link to my account. The application started, there was a tray icon displayed, but I couldn't do anything more. I couldn't see anything abnormal in the logs, they were similar to what you showed in your post.

By trial and error I found that if I start Dropbox application with empty DISPLAY environment variable (or without X11 started), then in the console it showed me the link that I could paste to the web browser. That link took me to Dropbox website, where I could log in to my account. And then after restarting Dropbox normally it started to sync files as it should.

So maybe you could try running Dropbox like this:
Code:
DISPLAY= ./dropboxd
