Using Dropbox in a KDE environment

Even though the Dropbox Service I seriously can’t live without anymore is basically designed to work with Nautilus and therefore Gnome, it works very well in a KDE environment.

Register with the service and then

cd $HOME

# download dropbox x86
wget -O dropbox_x86.tar.gz http://www.getdropbox.com/download?plat=lnx.x86
# or, if you are running x86_64
wget -O dropbox_x86_64.tar.gz http://www.getdropbox.com/download?plat=lnx.x86_64

# unpack it
tar xfvz dropbox_<x86 or x86_64>.tar.gz

# start dropboxd - the initial Wizard will be coming up to enter you account data
.dropbox-dist/dropboxd

# put the Dropbox daemon into your autostart, so it begins its job once KDE comes up
ln -s $HOME/.dropbox-dist/dropboxd $HOME/.kde/Autostart/dropboxd
