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.

My guess is that rc.local is executed as root.
