Install Dropbox on Unsuported versions of Linux

Ubuntu or Fedora Linux,can easily use dropbox in just few easy steps but not using these versions can't stop one from using Dropbox and sharing files.


All needs to do is just a little extra work. First make sure to have some necessary packages. Use package manager to see if you have Python 2.2 or greater and get installed. One more requirement is a web browser.
Go to dropbox.com and download the Linux source package. You should get a file that ends in .tar.bz2. Most Linux users call this tarball—the Linux equivalent of a Windows zip file. To extract it, run this command in your terminal: "tar xjf nautilus-dropbox*.tar.bz2". It should create a directory named .dropbox-dist in current directory. Now you need to start the Dropbox service by running the command ".dropbox-dist/dropboxd".This service which is also know as a daemon will print a message similar to the sample below that will prompt to activate Dropbox on your computer.
This client is not linked to any account..
Please visit https://www.dropbox.com/cli_link?7d44a557aa58f285f2da0x67334d02c1 to link this machine.
Be sure to go to the url your dropbox gives to you not the URL shown in the linked to any account.
Now Setup your Dropbox account using the instructions on the screen and it will create a folder in your home directory and all files in this directory will be synced with Dropbox’s server.


Hence Dropbox has been linked to your PC. Now copy any file to  ~/Dropbox folder and watch as they quickly appear in it's web interface. Also read How to install windows 10 on Linux in Virtual Box.
