I have Fuduntu 2013.1 (Best of Fedora and Ubuntu in one OS) installed on my Gateway netbook, along with a couple of other distros including CrunchBang.
All my distros have a shared /home partition. I originally thought this was a good idea, but now I see, as 2F4U mentioned (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2051212), that all the config files stored in ~ start to conflict across distros. But now it is too late to change my usernames or mount it as /stuff (I think. If this is possible, let me know).
So, my main remaining problem is that Dropbox keeps generating the following error:
Starting Dropbox...Traceback (most recent call last): File "<string>", line 6, in <module> zipimport.ZipImportError: can't decompress data; zlib not available ^CTraceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/bin/dropbox", line 1360, in <module> ret = main(sys.argv) File "/usr/bin/dropbox", line 1349, in main result = commands[argv[i]](argv[i+1:]) File "/usr/bin/dropbox", line 1220, in start if not start_dropbox(): File "/usr/bin/dropbox", line 716, in start_dropbox time.sleep(interval) KeyboardInterrupt
(I pressed Ctrl-C after it generated the zlib error)
I tried updating zlib and python, installing zlibc,zlib1g,and -dev versions (couldn't find any of these), but alas! Nothing works.
