I have encountered a weird problem with Mathematica 9. I have it installed on my laptop running Windows 7 and on my work computer now running Debian Wheezy. I am also using dropbox to access my work files and folders on the two systems. On both windows and linux I have setup the NaturalColour stylesheet as my default stylesheet for mathematica. I had no problems with this system until a few weeks ago when every time I open in linux a notebook written in windows, mathematica starts with that beep and the window with the error about the file could not be found. When I press OK on that window, the notebook opens in a new notebook with a really basic stylesheet: no title, subtitle and cell groups.

Any help would be great!

I am sorry about the non-formatted text but I have no idea how to format an entire block of pasted text to make it look pretty here.

Your problem seems strongly related with this answer: mathematica.stackexchange.com/questions/17323/… The answer should provide code for detection and repair of the issue –  hieron Aug 13 at 13:05
    
Can we hear from the OP whether or not @hieron's comment was useful? It's not obvious to me that the linked question is a duplicate since the OP states that everything was working until one day it wasn't. –  bobthechemist Aug 13 at 22:18

Sorry for the delayed answer but I had to leave the office early yesterday. I have tried to use the information from the post suggested by @hieron but unfortunately it didn't work (of maybe I didn't do it right). I have copied the NaturalColour.nb stylesheet to the /home/username/.Mathematica stylesheet folder but the problem persists. So I don't think the problems are related. I could post the output of the function from hieron's post, if that helps anyone. –  Lucian Aug 14 at 8:06
    
Post anything you can. I'm afraid that just these few lines are not helpful :) –  Öskå Aug 14 at 9:17
    
I have updated the original post to include the output of the function from the post suggested by @hieron –  Lucian Aug 14 at 10:46
