Dropbox monitoring problem

Briefly, if you see a system notification like this one:


Please run "echo 100000 | sudo tee /proc/sys/fs/inotify/max_user_watches" and restart Dropbox to correct the problem.

Do as following:

foogaro@foobian:˜$ sudo vi /etc/sysctl.conf

and insert the following line at the bottom

fs.inotify.max_user_watches = 100000

save and exit (:wq)
and reboot the system and launch Dropbox again.

Enjoy it!

Ciao, Foogaro
