Until now I ran the Linux Dropbox client as root. I know, not smart at all. But for some reason I couldn’t run the Linux daemon as a normal user.

The next locale warning I got from running the Linux Dropbox daemon as a user:
ValueError: unknown locale: UTF-8.
I added the two lines to
/etc/environment and now I’m finally running the Linux Dropbox daemon for a normal user.
