which Dropbox do I install?

Postby magician11 on Tue Dec 03, 2013 5:06 am

I see dropbox, nautilus-dropbox and nemo-dropbox

I'm using LMDE cinnamon.

So nemo-dropbox?

dropbox = Dropbox

nemo-dropbox = Dropbox integration for nemo file manager

nautilus-dropbox = Dropbox integration for nautilus file manager


I install Dropbox via the Dropbox website rather than the software manager.
Just grab the Ubuntu package from here: https://www.dropbox.com/install?os=lnx

Be aware that ypu download the installer from the official Dropbox website. After downloading and installing it you have to go to Menu > Internet > Dropbox. This will start the full installation of Dropbox in which you can also create an account.
