I've done what it says on the wiki. However no dropbox comes up upon rebooting. So then I went to the Dropbox.desktop file and double clicked it. I get this error: Failed to execute child process "(sleep"(no such file or directory). Then I click the Okay button. I copied and pasted the exact text from the wiki. So what am I doing wrong here folks?

Just curious as to why the .desktop file isn't working. But yep, working fine.
I think copying and pasting from that wiki people are ending up with windows style line endings and not unix style. I have no idea why this started occurring, it didn't used to when I wrote that wiki. I am not positive of this theory tho but I do know windows style line endings will give you the very misleading error message: No such file or directory
. It is a problem I have banged my head against before copying and pasting from web sites. I think this was also related to the issue aeonius was having, we ended up replacing his desktop file with one that looked exactly like it and it worked.
When I have time I will take a closer look at it and see if we can fix whatever is causing this issue ... meaning this issue goes onto my todo list
