SOLVED (partially, as it's without nautilus integration - pfft!)

I see at dropbox.com there is the 'server' version without nautilus

Where after installing it says:

but in the same folder there is also ~/.dropbox-dist/*dropbox* which
runs in the GUI fine and presents an icon in the Gnome panel. No
Nautilus support, but I don't care for this, as the GUI icon provides
all the functionality anyway.
So now running 2.10.28, and best of all the Dropbox servers allow me to
connect to them again.
:-D yay!!


What a saga... good to see it's sorted. I imagine that with SLED 12 out
sometime in the future, these issues will be resolved
