My dropbox syncing is incredibly slow...
I am using dropbox from the ubuntu repository on an almost fresh ubuntu installation.

I would like to avoid to install the package from the dropbox website for the reasons explained here Dropbox Upgrade

Is someone having the same problem? How can I solve?

EDIT :

This is an example of what I get.

[email protected]:~$ dropbox status
Syncing (17 files remaining, 22 secs left)
Uploading 17 files (123.3 KB/sec, 22 secs left)
[email protected]:~$ dropbox status
Syncing (17 files remaining, 3 mins left)
Uploading 17 files (13.2 KB/sec, 3 mins left)
[email protected]:~$ dropbox status
Syncing (17 files remaining, 5 mins left)
Uploading 17 files (8.2 KB/sec, 5 mins left)
[email protected]:~$ dropbox status
Syncing (17 files remaining)
Uploading 17 files...
[email protected]:~$ dropbox status
Syncing (17 files remaining)
Uploading 17 files...
[email protected]:~$ 

EDIT: I have run sudo dropbox update so I am probably using the last version of dropbox
