[SOLVED]not getting a dropbox app installed, anyone that works.

Post by userx-bw » Thu May 16, 2019 3:04 pm

I use to play with Manjaro awhile back, so I do have a little exposure to this way of adding apps, but, still having issues.. Oh my..

when I run yay -Syu aur/thunar-dropbox-git

Code: Select all

 -> Out Of Date AUR Packages:  oh-my-zsh-git
:: 1 Packages to upgrade.
1  aur/vivaldi  2.5.1525.41-1 -> 2.5.1525.43-1

#trying to install thunar-dropbox-git
python2: can't open file 'waf': [Errno 2] No such file or directory
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().
    Aborting...
Error making: thunar-dropbox-git

# I pick a waf to install it was not the right one.
#so I removed it here

[userx@arcooo ~]$ sudo pacman -R waf
I do not know If I need or should venture into figuring this out, it is only related to the system, and not this particular issue

Code: Select all

##from an update that sprung up after running cleanup
==> WARNING: Possibly missing firmware for module: wd719x
==> WARNING: Possibly missing firmware for module: aic94xx
I just need to get dropbox installed, the app that actually connects to dropbox and updates it, and with a gaulizzion options to pick from I have no idea which to pick from any more as it use to be just dropbox now there's too many variations, and I do not want to play install, remove until I find what i need to use.

what 'waf' is that talking about? I searched that and same, a gaulizzion options to pick from, which waf is it taking about, as well should that not be checked for and set as a deps to install it before running the script to do the rest? ( i already know that is to the one that wrote that build script, so it is just more of a redundant statement/question then anything else.)

Code: Select all

sudo pacman -S dropbox
will do the trick.

The plugin for thunar is not needed. I have never missed it in all these years.

PS: thunar-dropbox build here fine without errors
Learn, have fun and enjoy.
