Sometime recently, perhaps after updating using the opening menu, Dropbox stopped syncing.  No icon showed up, and "dropbox status" from the terminalindicated it wasn't started. Now would it.  I removed, then reinstalled using the Lite Software option.  No luck.  Then I deleted all the dropbox directories, including the hidden one and reinstalled.  No luck.  I get as far as running "dropbox start -i" and downloading the daemon, and it appears to download successfully, but then it fails to launch the subsequent request for my account credentials.  No error message.  Nothing,  Any ideas?  I have Linux Lite on three other old laptops with no problems.  BTW, I obviously appreciate Linux Lite, and it has increased my disrespect for Windows.  Thank you for your efforts.

I do not know if this applies to you but please read this link as it might not have anything to do with any operating system.

Wow.  Thanks for pointing this out to me.  I'll explore it and see, though the error message that it says I would get about "unlinking devices" hasn't shown up yet.  Still, I'm definitely over the three device limit.
