A new version (v0.8.1) of Dbmc is available for testing:
https://sourceforge.net/projects/xbmc-dropbox/

Changes:
- Fixes unicode problems (in Dropbox user names)
- Fix crash when trying to upload a file
- Fix crashing the 'dropbox file browser' on some (incomplete) skins

I had to make a lot of changes for this the first item. But now unicode (special characters) should be implemented correctly now. I didn't test everything yet, so let me know when you see a problem. Please provide me with debug logging when reporting the problem. (http://kodi.wiki/view/Log_file/Easy)

Thanks!

I installed the add-on on another Raspberry (again with OSMC Alpha 4) and I saw the 'add new account' only once. No popup or whatever showed up to present a PIN code
I tested on my RaspberyPi 2B with the Confluence skin: there the popup is shown. Then I switched to the OSMC skin and saw that the popup doesn't show. The OSMC skin probably didn't implement the popup windows (DialogOk.xml) yet.
So when you use the Confluence skin you will see the popup with the PIN. This is not an addon problem but a skin problem.

I have a RaspberryPi 2B now with OSMC so I'll check if I see the same issue. I'll come back on this...

Maybe some reset should be done? First action after 'Start' remains asking to finish adding account

There is a problem with the 'Show relevant files only' setting on my machine.

If I uncheck that box, I can see a .mp3 and .mp4 file:

If I check that box, the .mp3 or .mp4 are no longer displayed.

Secondly, I have the Dbmc addon in my Music addon list, but when I open it from there it says 'Videos - Dbmc' in the title bar at the top of the screen. So I guess it would look for videos files not music files, which is a problem. Anyway it doesn't show either the music (mp3) or video (mp4) file.

Is it possible to set a different folder in the dropbox directory as the default root folder for DBMC?

The behavior you describe I also see when the Dbmc addon is started from a short-cut (from a submenu). The problem here is that Kodi doesn't say from what kind of menu (picture, music or video) it is started. In this case the Dbmc addon default will use the video type. When I start it from within the 'normal' menus it works just fine.
This is a Kodi issue and I think also a structural Kodi issue. I have read some forums and there doesn't seem to be a solution for this... Sorry for that. Undecided

No sorry, this is not possible.

After using Super Favourites to make an icon in the main menu for my DBMC, it changed from images-add-on to video-add-on, even if it still is called from the images menu. What can I do to make it acting on images again?

Probably the Super Favourites have nothing to do with it, DBMC was used in the menu in the settings for Confluence. Soon after this problem the SD went corrupt.
Not really a clean environment from which I should report erratic behaviour.

I am using openelec on Pi 2. I cannot finish setting up the dropbox. When it gives me the pin and I press ok the web viewer does not appear. I have to switch to the web viewer. After I type in my pin number it gives me a link to get my code. I get an error

When the hardware is switched off (and on again), will DBMC pick up syncing, or must the syncing be enabled after each new start?

http://xbmclogs.com/ptsyhkxq7 shows an exception after synchronisation is enabled, it is about a syncthread building a pathname

File "/home/osmc/.kodi/addons/plugin.dbmc/resources/lib/sync/syncfolder.py", line 186, in updateLocalPath
self._localPath += os.sep
TypeError: unsupported operand type(s) for +=: 'NoneType' and 'str'

is there a web server alternative, The packaged one is broken and it is impossible to activate the dropbox addon with it.

Using the web viewer is no longer required. You should use a normal web-browser (on any device) to continue with adding an account. See also:
Add-on:Dbmc#Adding_an_dropbox_account (wiki)

Where did you get the information that the web-viewer should start? That is so old information! Wink

mmhhh, I'm not sure what is going on there. It looks like a previous sync failed and corrupted some administration. Can you try to restart the sync from the start and see if that fixes it? This can be done by disabling the synchronization for that account. That will remove the administration and already synced files. Afterwards setup the sync again for that account.
When it shows the same problem, can you provide me debug logging for:
- when the sync is freshly setup
- when the above problem occurs

The logging above doesn't show debug logging unfortunately.
Thanks!
