How to install dropbox in KDE BL5

Postby clvr08 » Tue Nov 02, 2010 10:19 am

This worked for me.
Download the dropbox deamon from the dropbox website

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

cd ~

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
write these two lines
~/.dropbox-dist/dropboxd >/dev/null 2>&1 &


then from the terminal
chmod +x

disclaimer i haven't tested the autostart script
