Dropbox suddenly stopped to work.

So all of a sudden I got this problem with Dropbox installed from AUR, that was previously working just fine.

$ LC_ALL=C dropbox
dropbox: locating interpreter
!! dropbox: can't trust path, fall back on working directory (relative)!
!! dropbox: failed to resolve program path (No such file or directory)!
!! dropbox: no executable path! (error 1)
Przerwane (zrzut pamięci)

Not sure what to do, as I couldn't find any decent solution on the web. It doesn't seem to be an issue with permissions.

"... being a Linux user is sort of like living in a house inhabited by a large family of carpenters and architects. Every morning when you wake up, the house is a little different. Maybe there is a new turret, or some walls have moved. Or perhaps someone has temporarily removed the floor under your bed."

Re: Dropbox suddenly stopped to work.

Nobody could help me with this problem, but eventually I run into a possible solution/workaround here.

First

rm -r .dropbox-dist

and

rm -r .dropbox

Second - build and install dropbox-cli from AUR.

Third - run

dropbox-cli start -i

and connect you computer to your dropbox account.

It worked for me, at least for now, but this method doesn't seem do resolve the problem.
