    well, it's integrated with nautilus and with Fedora KDE I read that there is a workaround, but you lose something of the notification functionality in the sys tray I think...I remember it being funky so I just went to gnome. I'll look into it again, it's been a while..but I was hoping for something wiz bang here as I'm new to this distro. thanks for the reply.

    I use linux in a work environment btw.

    Probably using gnome out of necessity like me I'll keep searching...keeping my files sync'd between laptops is essential for me....

    DropBox works fine in KDE, but if you want the GUI warm and fuzzy you
    must use Nautilus....which we know is a Gnome app that runs fine in
    KDE *if* you have the Gnome basics installed...i run DropBox and it
    shows in my systray/taskbar without being at all "funky"..

    i click on the icon and up pops Nautilus showing all the stuff i have
    in the box..

    as i recall i found (via google, or in these fora) a link to "Dropbox
    without Gnome" and followed the directions carefully....try:

    thanks...I'll read that one...might tempt me to go back to KDE

    by 'funky' I meant not running nautilus, losing some gui functionality although it syncs. Whether or not running nautilus in KDE is funky, I don't know

    I use Dropbox in KDE and I don't have it integrated. It just runs in the system tray, just as it does with Windows. I have not tried intergrating it although I do use Nautilus in KDE. I simply have not seen the need for it.

    The one click install at Software.openSUSE.org worked well. I did not let it keep the repositories after the install. I unchecked that box.
