    Dropbox and Ubuntu 13.10...solved yet?

    I've heard all over the web that Dropbox no longer works properly in 13.10. Has this been resolved yet? I've love to upgrade, but I use Dropbox all the time for personal and business use.

    Source please. At least one credible one.

    Oops. Sorry. Here's where I saw it first.

    Commenters are saying it may have been fixed in beta, but I still want to be sure before upgrading to the final version.

    I see one of the user comments at the bottom of this article:

    "Comment #2.1 by: annonymous on 28 Sep 2013, 22:10 GMT

    Yes, this issue has been fixed after installing the latest updates in 13.10 beta. So happy. "

    In ubuntu 13.10 Final, I am unable to get dropbox to work. I have gone to xubuntu 13.10 and dropbox works well.

    Seems to work fine on my newly updated system.
    Is a standard vanilla ubuntu 13.10 system upgraded from a 13.04 (that was a fresh install)

    There isn't an official dropbox repository for saucy yet. But using the raring repo seems to work fine for now.
    Just remember to change it in a few days (or weeks ) when the nice people at dropbox get around to making the new repo.

    I did an upgrade from Raring rather than a clean install and Dropbox continues to work normally for me.

    I downloaded the .deb from the dropbox website (since I can't install from the software center due to "Unmet dependencies"). To see the dropbox icon I followed this advice:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install libappindicator1
    Now the problem is that I can't login to my account and start syncing. I open the "Preferences", under account it says that this computer is not linked to an account, but I can't find a way to add my account...

    Any ideas?

    Ubuntu Saucy, 32bit version
