[Solved] Dropbox?

Post#1 by Bogdan » 06 Jan 2013, 19:00

I need help installing dropbox on porteus xfce edition. I download the source from official site, and since Dropbox run with nautilus and i have thunar, configuration fail with "libnautilus-extension package is missing". I solved this before on fedora xfce, but this is my first time using a slackware based distro, so I just need someone to tell me what i need to install to fix this?

Which version of Porteus are you using?

My first advice would be to install the slackware package:

Code: Select all

wget http://slack.isper.sk/pub/slackware-14.0/network/dropbox/1.2.49/dropbox-1.2.49-i686-3sl.txz -P /tmp
installpkg /tmp/dropbox-1.2.49-i686-3sl.txz
dropbox
You may have to start the dropbox daemon first with: dropboxd &

OK. Everything is fine now. It was just a question of signing in.

Thanks.
