How to install dropbox in KDE BL5

This worked for me.
Download the dropbox deamon from the dropbox website
http://www.getdropbox.com/download?plat=lnx.x86

drag the compressed file in your home folder.
right click then extract.
open a terminal/konsole

cd ~
./.dropbox-dist/dropboxd

then the daemon would start
and would do the normal starting up of the dropbox at this point the tray icon would also show up

to make it start everytime you login
cd ~
cd .kde/Autostart
kate startdropbox.sh
write these two lines
#!/bin/bash
~/.dropbox-dist/dropboxd >/dev/null 2>&1 &

save

then from the terminal
chmod +x startdropbox.sh

disclaimer i haven't tested the autostart script
