Autostart dropbox daemon with Systemd

I have installed headless dropbox as described here

Also downloaded the Python management script and put it in /usr/local/lib as /usr/local/bin/dropbox

Created the following configuration file in my home directory - ~/.config/systemd/user/dropbox.service The content of the service is here -

Then I enabled the service and started it and everything is fine.

The problem appeared when I reboot the machine and the service was not started.

systenctl --user status dropbox.service returns

‚óŹ dropbox.service - Dropbox deamon Loaded: loaded (/home/georgi/.config/systemd/user/dropbox.service; enabled; vendor preset: enabled) Active: inactive (dead)

journalctl --user-unit dropbox.daemon returns

I have no clue how to make the daemon start
