Dropbox from Debian

If you install Dropbox from the Debian repros then the Wiki instructions for autostart wont work as Debian doesn't put dropbox in the users files. What seems to work ok is first install Dropbox from the Debian repros

 apt-get install dropbox

then check you have a bin folder in your home directory, create it if not, and

touch ~/bin/nautilus && chmod +x ~/bin/nautilus && gedit ~/bin/nautilus &

Then if you want to use pcmanfm paste the following into the new  nautilus  file

#!/bin/bash
exec pcmanfm $@
exit 0

then add to your autostart file

# start dropbox daemon, but give it time to establish a net connection.
(sleep 30s &&  /usr/bin/dropbox) &

Be excellent to each other!

Re: Dropbox from Debian

Does this version use your default filemanager. You don't need the nautilus file for Debian as it will just use Iceweasel to display your local Dropbox files but I prefered pcmanfm.

Re: Dropbox from Debian

You can also install automatically from the "Dropbox" submenu of the standard Statler menu - on the Openbox version at least. That installs in the user's directory, and doesn't need the nautilus hack.You get the same 0.7.110 version that's in the repos.
