Installing Dropbox

Postby g-banjo on Tue Feb 26, 2013 4:05 am

Now then, I'm looking to install Dropbox from the package manager and find two versions: nautilus-dropbox and nemo-dropbox. What's the difference and which should I choose?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

If you are using Cinnamon 1.6 (default on Linux Mint 14, and on Linux Mint 13 if you have enabled backports) then you want nemo-dropbox. That integrates Dropbox with your Cinnamon file manager, Nemo.

If you are using another desktop environment, use the Dropbox package for your DE's file manager. (caja-dropbox for MATE's Caja; nautilus-dropbox for older versions of Cinnamon or for Gnome Shell's or Unity's Nautilus.)
