@ Lee,
My problem is that I cannot access Dropbox - it might be running, but I 
cannot start it in any way / or access Dropbox on the PC. It is as if it 
is not running or not synct to the PC / as if it is not linked.  I 
understand that it might sound strange but what now?  I click the icon 
at the top next to the network manager and nothing happens, or click 
Dropbox in Applications and nothing happens.
When I type dropbox running in the terminal, it responds with 'dropbox 
command-line interface'.

Come to think of it, the only PC where I can access dropbox is one PC 
(out of three) which I have not updated recently.
