    Just a comment to autostart it as it didn’t work for me and a google search was not very fruitful.

    You can use “Startup Application” in the Dash and use Browse to find the Startup file. Use CTRL-H to show hidden files. The file is in your home dir at /.dropbox-dist. Just using ~/.dropbox-dist/dropboxd did not work. I had to use the browse button.
