Hmm. should be instant, but running `dropbox.py status` should be returning `Syncing...` not `Starting...`
`Starting...` means the daemon is not running correctly...

 

Can you try restarting the container, then running `ps xafu` as the root user inside the container?

Mine returns this

bash-4.3# ps xafu
USER       PID %CPU %MEM    VSZ   RSS TTY      STAT START   TIME COMMAND
root       243  0.2  0.0  18012  3064 pts/0    Ss   05:49   0:00 bash

I'm getting the same thing stuck on "Starting...."

I've wiped out all traces of the container and configs and started clean, still happens. No real changes to the docker setup except assigning an IP address and the path to a non-cached share on the array for the Dropbox sync folder.

 

Also, my version is older than the one you show...126.4.4618

 

sh-4.3# su - nobody
[email protected]:~$ dropbox.py status
Starting...
[email protected]:~$ exit
logout
sh-4.3# ps xafu
USER       PID %CPU %MEM    VSZ   RSS TTY      STAT START   TIME COMMAND

sh-4.3# 

 

the log only shows this from the creation of the container:

Any ideas? I never see any of the stuff like this in the logs (copied from other posts here, never see this on my system)-

Hmm, I'm stumped.

I'll check to see if there's anything in the Dropbox headless client - they really don't give it as much support as they should.

 

I have same issues. I install as new container and the dropbox still after starting in "Starting..." status. I am checjing this status via commad "dropbox.py status" in consle of Dropbox.

 

Do you have any ideas why the Dropbox not start syncing?

 

Many thanks

Sorry that's my mistake. I forgot that I swapped repositories too, so it's probably not a valid post here. However, I think the second repository I tried had the exact same issues that we were experiencing with roninkenji's So there might be a clue in there somewhere for you Kenji. I'm not knowledgable enough to work it out, sorry.

Anyway, after deleting the container, image and files in appdata I put otherguy/dropbox:1.9.0 in the repository field, put the extra parameters info in and followed the instructions as normal. 

I really appreciated the speedy responses from you Kenji. Please let me know if you'd like me to test out your repository again, if you make any changes.

Great! I delete container. I set new one container from repo otherguy/dropbox:1.9.0. I set variables and paths and it`s working!!

 

If Kenji`s container will be update for working state then I can it try again.

 

Thanks Tom!

Add the docker and configure the folders:

refer to attachment: Container Mounts.png

 

Then check the docker container logs for a link to copy and paste to link your dropbox container.

I do not understand how to add the link that I am getting via the log.

 

As soon as I am clicking on the link and basically linking unRIAD Dropbox to my Dropbox account I am getting another error (please see screenshot).

Show your docker mappings here and check them for a folder named Dropbox - that sounds like the source of the issue.

 

I've got the same issue. Completely fresh install, installed the app using the default settings and linked to Dropbox and then just have this:
 

[ALERT]: Dropbox needs to rename your existing folder or file named Dropbox to finish installing. Please close any open documents and try again.

 

My settings are the same as EdgarWallace
