Dropbox not sync-ing in KDE
I am trying to use dropbox on Fedora 12 KDE. I have untarred it and started the daemon, and it syncs OK, initially.
The problem is on subsequent boots, it doesn't sync. I have set up a symlink in '~/.kde/Autostart' to the dropbox daemon located at '~/.dropbox-dist/dropboxd', and when I start KDE the dropbox icon appears in the systray, so it appears that it has worked.
But it hasn't. New files added from another workstation are not present in the ~/Dropbox file; so it hasn't synced.
But if I kill the dropbox daemon and then restart it, dropbox syncs (the systray icon shows the sync-ing graphic, and newly added files appear in ~/Dropbox).
So why is this happening? How does the kill / restart daemon process I described differ from just starting the daemon via the symlink after a reboot?
Thanks in advance
