How To Reconnect To Dropbox Ubuntu
Oct 20, 2012
- Logging out in Ubuntu 18.04 GNOME. It is okay to wonder about how to log out in Ubuntu. It’s because the option for logging out is a bit hidden in GNOME. What you need to do here is to go to the top right corner of the screen and click on the drop down to bring out the setting panel. In here, click on your username.
- Unexpectedly, the commands listed here deleted Dropbox folders 'in the cloud'. I.e., I have Dropbox working well under different OSs, but running these commands deleted folders completely (rather than just from the current OS). I tried performing this on linux, but notice the result from Mac.
Thanks a lot, man! This issue started appearing on two of my machines after upgrading to Ubuntu 12.10. I also left a breadcrumb in a Dropbox forum thread where I noticed people described the same problem https://forums.dropbox.com/topic.php?id=44314

Thanks! I wasn't sure what consequences the error would have, but this seems to have fixed it.

I just upgraded to Xubuntu 12.10 and had the same problem. Other than my version of libstdc++ now being 6.0.17, these instructions worked. Thanks for posting.
