[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.

Hi,
I'm just discovering Porteus on my old Eee Pc 4G.
Works really fine, excepted that I can't use Dropbox :
I downloaded and mounted "dropbox-client-1.6.1-i386-1alien.xzm" module and get the following error message when launching dropbox from menu :
"Failed to execute child process "dropbox" (No such file or directory)".
My version is V3.22 32bits.

If you can help me anyway.
Thanks in advance.

JPO, welcome on the board!
You are need to activate dropbox-client-1.6.1-i386-1alien.xzm or better copy this module to /mnt/your-partition/porteus/modules and activate it.

Hi Blaze,
thanks for your reply, but I've already placed the specified module in the modules folder and activated it.
I was wondering if some dependencies were missing ?

JPO, I think that you have this missing dep pygtk-2.24.0-i586-2.txz
Can you open terminal and run this command?

Code: Select all

/usr/bin/python /usr/bin/dropbox start -i

I've got the following message in terminal :

How can I proceed to install this dep you mentioned ?

JPO, download and convert python-2.7.14-i586-1_slack14.2.txz and pygtk-2.24.0-i586-2.txz via right click of mouse to xzm modules and activate it. After this run this command

Code: Select all

/usr/bin/python /usr/bin/dropbox start -i
Thanks.

Blaze, I followed your instructions and installed the 2 modules.
Here is the result in my terminal window :

root@porteus:~# /usr/bin/python /usr/bin/dropbox start -i
Starting Dropbox...Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/dropbox", line 1256, in start
download()
File "/usr/bin/dropbox", line 280, in download
import pygtk
ImportError: No module named pygtk
root@porteus:~#

Sorry, I'm definitely not familiar with Porteus modules ;)
But I really appreciate your help.

I'm getting the same error as JPO but I'm using Mate 1.19.

I do have pygtk-2.24.0-x86_64-4.xzm, python-2.7.14-x86_64-1.xzm and python3-3.6.3-x86_64-1.xzm activate.
I just like Slackware because I think it teach you about Linux to build packages where Ubuntu is like Windows you just install programs you want.

Reinstall the pygtk package via slackware tools.

installpkg /path/to/pygtk-2.24.0-x86_64-4.txz
