I have Dropbox installed on Crunchbang 11 Waldorf and added to autostart.sh. Everytime that Openbox starts, I get a dropbox screen saying that my folder is absent. I have the Dropbox folder in a NTFS partition named "vajra"; it is not in the main linux partition due to its size. What I need to do to have Dropbox start normally is to open Thunar, click on the NTFS volume (vajra) and wait until it is mounted. I usually get this message the first time I click on it:
Fail to mount "vajra"
DBus error org.gtk.Private.RemoteVolumeMonitor.Failed: An operation is already pending
I click on Vajra again and then the folders display. Only then I can open Dropbox normally. My line for Dropbox in autostart is as follows. It is the last one of the list:
# Lanza el Dropbox
(sleep 5s && ~/.dropbox-dist/dropboxd) &
Any ideas will be appreciated.

Have you tried increasing the wait time? My autostart has
# Autostart the Dropbox daemon (sleep 20s && ~/.dropbox-dist/dropboxd) &
I changed the wait time to 40 seconds but the problem persists It seems that the only way for my NTFS partition to be properly mounted is by opening a file explorer like Thunar. I do what I said in the first post: click on the NTFS label twice and wait until it is mounted correctly. Only then I can open Dropbox again and I can use it.
Is there any way to solve this?
# /etc/fstab: static file system information. # # Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a # device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices # that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5). # # <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass> # / was on /dev/sda3 during installation UUID=75d4a6bb-60e0-43c1-b07e-3e06d57257f5 / ext4 errors=remount-ro 0 1 # swap was on /dev/sda4 during installation UUID=ef6b11e8-3643-4520-9c39-e95c03b85434 none swap sw 0 0 /dev/sr0 /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,noauto 0 0 #/dev/sdb1 /media/usb0 auto rw,user,noauto 0 0
Ok, now I understand. It seems that fstab is a file. This is the output. I have also used "code" as VDP76 advised.
Thanks in advance.
cd /media/ sudo mkdir vajra sudo mount -t ntfs /dev/sdaX /media/vajra sudo chown -R user:user /media/vajra
That solved the problem. This community is amazing. Thanks so much for your help.
I am so glad to be using Crunchbang.
You're welcome, I am glad I could help!
Yep, this is a great community, many of us have come here for the distro but stayed for the forums...
