Dropbox on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS

Has anyone managed to install Dropbox deb in Ubuntu 22.04 LTS or has the community introduced an installation guide yet?
Perhaps it’s just early days. There is a download available in Ubuntu Software but a quick look at installing it seemed not to work - the version listed is 2019.02.14 and one review (22/04/2022) suggests that it no longer works whilst others suggest that it continues to ask for upgrades.
Would appreciate any advice

try the apt in this post deb-get
I haven’t tried it on 22.04 yet but works on other versions.
you may have to use xorg instead of wayland though?

Based on my experience with dropbox in Debian, I think you may need to start the daemon (dropboxd). Doing the install does not start the daemon in Debian

I’m currently trying out Voyager, a respin of Ubuntu 22.04. On seeing this question, I shifted work areas, invoked the Software Boutique, and installed Dropbox. A dialog box took me to the website, asked me to sign in, and I was in business. The Dropbox folder was created, the folder was populated from the cloud, and the panel icon appeared.

Less than three minutes to install. No problem.

well I have dropbox running but no indicator in the systray.
I have tried the instructions in this AU answer but still to no avail.
Is this perhaps an issue with wayland. The Ubuntu installation is vanilla straight from the installation media.
UPDATE: Using Extension Manager I set Ubuntu Appindicators to ON and notice that by doing so, there is a 3 dot horizontal icon in the systray which accesses the Dropbox functionality but not the stackd 5 box icon usually associated with this application.
So, some progress.

Yes, Dropbox installed correctly on my 22.04 LTS including the icon on the top bar. Don’t know why you have an issue, however, I needed to deregister one device (was obsolete desktop PC) and register the current desktop PC as my Dropbox device quota was full.

Yes, I had to do the same. The incorrect icon persists though.
UPDATE: a reboot has now resolved the icon issue; the correct stacked box icon is now present on the systray in place of the 3 dot horizon icon. Perhaps it was just lurking about in the background, but the issue is now resolved. :slightly_smiling_face:
