Trying to install dropboxd and getting an error about startup. It talks about it possibly being a permission issue. Here is the log file

Code:

pid:    5366
ppid:   3964
uid:    1000
user_info:  ('jcostanzo', 'x', 1000, 1000, '', '/home/jcostanzo', '/bin/bash')
effective_user_info:    ('jcostanzo', 'x', 1000, 1000, '', '/home/jcostanzo', '/bin/bash')
euid:   1000
gid:    1000
egid:   1000
group_info: ('jcostanzo', 'x', 1000, [])
effective_group_info:   ('jcostanzo', 'x', 1000, [])

    mode=041777 uid=0   gid=0
parent  mode=040755 uid=0   gid=0
Traceback (most recent call last):

Any thoughts?

I was having this problem and what I did was to get the latest version

http://dl-web.dropbox.com/u/17/dropbox-lnx.x86_64-1.2.0.tar.gz
http://dl-web.dropbox.com/u/17/dropbox-lnx.x86-1.2.0.tar.gz

then extract the file, delete ~/.dropbox and ~/.dropbox-dist then move the extracted .dropbox-dist directory to ~/.dropbox-dist and

Code:
start dropbox -i
in the terminal and it started right up.
