I'm new to mint. How do I install dropbox? You mentioned I should install from the site. Should I choose debian or Ubuntu? Thanks

Installed dropbox as always from the dropbox-site.
Syncing is no problem; however, overlay icons (synchronized, not yet synchronized) are missing. I tried changing theme and icons, and tried
Unlinking, relinking, reinstalling and so on: no overlay icons.

However, I noticed that there is a nemo-dropbox extension, but requires me to remove dropbox itself. I haven't had the guts to try it out.
I had the guts, I did "sudo apt-get install nemo-dropbox" and it says it will remove dropbox before the terminal prompt so I put in Y for yes.
Then it said use "nemo --quit" to quit any current instances of nemo so I did, but then dropbox was still in my menu and I started it and got the syncing icons.
