    May I ask why you're trying to compile it? I got it working this way, if that helps...

    Hello there,

    If you are brand new to linux as you stated please take some time to read about your new operating system first:

    How to migrate from Windows - openSUSE

    Concepts - openSUSE


    The short answer to "file not found" issue is probably you tried to run configure script outside the newly created directory: nautilus-dropbox-0.6.1

    So you need to cd to it or give the path to it.

    Another tip for source packages: almost all have README and/or INSTALL files: those you need to read since they have information about the package you try to compile and install.

    The recommendation would be to look for rpm packages first and then compile from source if that one is not available until you learn more about linux / opensuse.

    Cheers and welcome to openSUSE.
