When will dropbox be nautilus integrated?

Postby Christof999 on Sun Nov 07, 2010 1:15 pm

Hi,

When will dropbox be nautilus integrated for LMDE?

this is something I have never understood, if something isnt working or has been taken out of the debian repositories, why doesnt the mint team make their own deb package and distributed through romeo?

Since installing LMDE my computer has more stability but way less functionality.

Dropbox - removed from debian repos, no nautilus integration. The mind team could get the nautilus integrated source and make it a mint/romeo
Beagle - removed from debian repos
NES emulators - most not in repos
Listen Media player - Not working
Exaile Media player - not working
Auto mounting of NFS shares - not working

etc.

Why in the case of dropbox and beagle doesn't the mint team simply compile their own version and make it available through the romeo repo?

Beyond that when will dropbox be back in the repos and when will it be nautilus integrated once more? When will beagle be back? Help me out here, I want to love LMDE, I want a stable machine, but compiling source is not user friendly and never works for me, so I really would like to be able to install the basic apps through the software channel.

as far as i know, LMDE is based on the Debian guidelines what concerns software. That means... if you can't get it on debian you probably ain't get it on LMDE.

but for this you should write directly to one of the LMDE staffmembers.
It is interesting the way we create complex and powerful tools to save us
from the complex and powerful tools we created previously.

I just got this from Dropbox helpdesk:
Please try this advanced version of Dropbox. It has the latest fixes and features in it. You can download it using the following links:

- Windows: http://dl-web.dropbox.com/u/17/Dropbox%200.8.112.exe
- Linux x86_64: http://dl-web.dropbox.com/u/17/dropbox- ... 112.tar.gz
- Linux x86: http://dl-web.dropbox.com/u/17/dropbox- ... 112.tar.gz

** To install on Linux, run the following terminal commands from your home directory:

$ dropbox stop
$ dropbox status # Should report "not running"
$ rm -r ~/.dropbox-dist/
$ tar xzf dropbox-lnx.x86-0.8.112.tar.gz # or x86_64
$ dropbox start

Please note, these versions of Dropbox are currently considered works in progress. If you come across anything unusual, feel free to report the problem by responding to this email. If you prefer to use the latest stable version, you can always find it at https://www.dropbox.com/install

Best,
Todd
Following the directions got Dropbox running on my LMDE netbook. The standard download wouldn't install because of dependency problems, and the tar.gz version wouldn't compile. This one seems to work.

There is a link to a nice nautilus-dropbox package for Squeeze/Testing/LMDE at my blog - http://musings.omnsproject.org/?p=737

I can verify that it works well :)

Description: Easily share and sync files across computers and mobile devices with free space online.
Put your files into your Dropbox on one computer, and they'll be instantly available on any of your other computers that also have Dropbox installed (Windows, Mac, Linux, Android, iPhone/iPad...etc). Because copies of your files are stored on Dropbox's secure servers, you can also access them from any computer or mobile device using the Dropbox website.

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install dropbox


this put an icon in mintmenu, once clicked a dialog box told me to:
"download the proprietary daemon from dropbox.com"

i saw there was no listing for debian(ubu 32,64bit and fedora), so i followed the
install from CLI instructions on dropbox.com

this installed the daemon, opened a dialog box to setup my account..

I can highly suggest to grab the debs from this repository:
http://hadret.rootnode.net/debian/pool/main/

The website is: http://hadret.rootnode.net/

It is based on Unstable so you should not use it as a repository (i do because i'm on Unstable), but you can grab nautilus-dropbox and even notify-osd and notify-icons if you want ;)

If you know the "pinning" method, it's the best compromise. However i can't guide you on a tutorial in english because i'm french :p
