Dropbox on LTSP clients


Dear All,

We are trying to install Dropbox on LTSP client machines, so that users of the workstations can each setup their own account in Dropbox and sync their files (from any workstation in the office).

What we have done is the following:
Code:
ltsp-chroot   # Chroot into the LTSP environment
echo deb http://linux.dropbox.com/debian wheezy main > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/dropbox.list
apt-key adv --keyserver pgp.mit.edu --recv-keys 5044912E
apt-get update
apt-get install dropbox
Installation went smooth, and Dropbox runs, syncs files properly, etc., but, on each reboot of the LTSP client, Dropbox prompts the user to enter Dropbox login information once again.

Does anyone have any suggestions?
Thanks

EDIT: Forgot to mention, this has been tried on both Debian 7 and Ubuntu 12.04 operating systems

Dear All,

Any suggestions? We have further tried to add the following entry in LTSP's lts.conf, in a hope that giving the LTSP client a static hostname might make Dropbox recognize the machine on reboot:
Code:
HOSTNAME=orion
But, to no avail.

Thank you
