May I ask how did you manage to make it work in the end? I am using this approach with dropbox but somehow cannot start it up. cd ~ && wget -O - "https://www.dropbox.com/download?plat=lnx.x86_64" | tar xzf - Next, run the Dropbox daemon from the newly created .dropbox-dist folder. ~/.dropbox-dist/dropboxd My guess is that rc.local is executed as root. -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "qubes-users" group.
