The Dropbox installation package source has been released to the public via a GPL license. This means that even if we don't have installation packages for your Linux or Unix distribution of choice, you can still compile a version yourself.
Installing Dropbox from source
- Download the latest installer package.
- Extract the tarball like so:
tar xjf ./nautilus-dropbox-1.6.1.tar.bz2
- In most distributions, the following commands should do the rest:
cd ./nautilus-dropbox-1.6.1; ./configure; make; make install;
For specific distributions or to configure your installation, see the INSTALL file included with the source package.
