Probably not.

what is the exact message ?

Can you run these commands in sequence:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get update
ten
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get upgrade
then
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
then REBOOT

Then try
menu > Internet > Dropbox
again, and tell me EXACTLY what happens when you try to run Dropbox

"In order to use Dropbox, you must download the proprietary daemon."

(then 'don't show this again check box option & ok / cancel )
Do I need to reboot ?

Ah, I see .. when you get that dialog, select "OK" and it should automagically download and install the dropbox daemon. :)

Had me confused there for a second  .. it only does this the first time it's run.

Okey dokey, as it's generally good forum practice to have a single question (with a well defined subject line) per topic, I think it best if we now close this topic.

From now on can you please post a new topic (with an explanatory subject line) per question.

It makes it easier for people who may have the same question to find an answer .. one question per topic also makes it easy to mark a topic as (SOLVED) if a solution is found .. again making it easy for people searching for a working answer.

TIA :)
