Ubuntu: Dropbox requiring nautilus restart every boot after 16.04 upgrade


I have just upgraded to Ubuntu 16.04. I had dropbox installed before the upgrade with no problems.

Now, every time I log in, dropbox prompts that nautilus requires reboot. I can do this fine and dropbox continues on its merry way, but it's annoying to do this every login.

I have uninstalled dropbox and reinstalled it, both from Software Centre and by using:

sudo apt-get purge nautilus-dropbox  sudo apt-get autoremove  sudo apt-get update  sudo apt-get install nautilus-dropbox  

No change to the prompts.

Any idea? Thanks in advance.


Download Dropbox from here: https://www.dropbox.com/install

Install the file by right click > Open with software install.


sudo dpkg -i filename.deb  sudo apt-get install -f  sudo dpkg -i filename.deb
