File not found? Realy? How fix it?

  • Please open an issue here: github.com/elementary/files/issues Jun 24, 2020 at 10:18
  • Note that little or no work is being done to maintain this plugin, in the absence of specific issues raised about it. It is hoped to replace it in the future with a general "cloudproviders.plugin". I just installed it, and the DropBox client from the website and I get the same error. I'll look into it further.

  • I have pushed a pull request that fixes this for me here: github.com/elementary/files/pull/1380 Jun 24, 2020 at 12:12
  • The fix has now been merged into master but, unless you can compile and install the master source you will not experience it until the next Files stable release. Jun 26, 2020 at 18:01
  • github.com/elementary/files/tree/dropbox-plugin worked fine for me as well! Thanks! (I cannot upvote, since I still haven't got enough reputation). An important detail is that you have to checkout the "dropbox-plugin" branch and follow the instructions from README.md from there.
