QuoteSimple fix for the looping "Dropbox daemon not installed!" problemI ( I - the Ubuntu user ) performed an Ubuntu update the other day, and my dropbox stopped working.It kept asking me to install the dropbox daemon, even though I had already installed it.I fixed this problem by removing the hidden dropbox folders in my home directory, and then reinstalling the dropbox package.Short answer:Remove the two hidden dropbox folders (~/.dropbox and ~/.dropbox-dist) from your home directory, and try running dropbox again.Long answer:Step 1 - Remove the two hidden dropbox folders: rm -rfd ~/.dropbox-dist/ rm -rfd ~/.dropbox/Step 2 - Reinstall dropbox: Download the appropriate dropbox for your distro.https://www.dropbox.com/install?os=lnx Use the download to reinstall the dropbox package.Step 3 - Open dropbox: Open dropbox, dropbox is usually found in your applications drop-down under internet. Step 4 - Install daemon and configure: When you run dropbox, it will install the dropbox daemon. Once it has completed that step, it should ask you to log out and in again. Log out, then log back in. Once you have logged back in, re-run dropbox. This time when you run dropbox, it will ask you for your login details. Provide your login details. Dropbox will now ask where you want to sync your dropbox to. Select the same folder as you previously used.Step 5 - Finished Dropbox should now be working again!
QuoteUsing GMail's SMTP ServerIt is sometimes easier to configure reportbug to use GMail to send bug reports rather than the existing sendmail program installed by default in Debian. The following outlines the steps to accomplish this: Run 'reportbug --configure' as your normal user. This creates a ~/.reportbugrc file that stores all the configurations. Follow the instructions and when asked "Do you have a 'mail transport agent' (MTA) configured", choose 'No'. Then enter the SMTP host for gmail: 'smtp.gmail.com:587' For the user name enter: '<username>@gmail.com' For the question "Does your SMTP host require TLS authentication?", choose 'Yes' (If you are on a release < squeeze, reportbug will not ask this question.) If you have set up Google's two-factor authentication for your GMail account, you can create an application-specific password to use with reportbug.
