Is there an advantage to doing it this way? I simply installed it from Synaptic and it downloads it's own package files when you first run it. It's been working fine this way for me.

Just better integration with thunar, works anyway. Now you can have these Dropbox options in menu if you right-click.

following the install of this dropbox package whenever I do and apt-get update now I get,
N: Ignoring file 'dropbox.list.save' in directory '/etc/apt/sources.list.d/' as it has an invalid filename extension

Are these Thunar Dropbox things are only going to work on LMDX?

I tried to install it on my LMDX portable install, and I got an error message about missing or incompatible dependencies.

Just delete the file it's not needed.
It got backed up even though it's the same.

Code: Select all

sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/dropbox.list.save

You need to install dropbox 1st.

Ooops! I just assumed that Thunar Dropbox was instead of the regular Dropbox install on Xfce, not as well as it. Okay, I'll try that later and see what happens.

Thanks mate, I worked that one out for myself eventually but thanks for the reply, do you know if the right click problem with the Mint styles will be fixed anytime soon? it's a shame not to be able to use them on a Mint Distro

It's already version 0.2.0 at http://softwarebakery.com/maato/thunar-dropbox.html
Shouldn't this package be updated too?
* edit: never mind, I see that 0.2.0 was released before this post so maybe 0.1.2 is related to the Thunar version...

Silly question maybe, but is this one still the right way to do it if I want to have the right-click options for Dropbox?
