    Default Dropbox Dolphin integration

    Anyone knows a better way to achieve the goal of Dropbox Dolphin integration other than compiling this from source ?
    trichard's blog: Introducing Dropbox integration for Dolphin

    Particularly I'm interested in the function :
    Dropbox - How do I link to files in my Dropbox? -

    I think something like this exists for GNOME and nautilus but I'm a die hard KDE user

    Looks like some very new "Factory" RPMs or KDE and Dropbox have been created, scroll down the page at

    software.opensuse.org: Search Results

    I might assume without actually knowing that KDE on OpenSUSE 11.3 will likely support Dolphin integration.

    HTH,

    Thanks for the reply.

    I already installed kdropbox from this repo :
    Index of /repositories/KDE:/Extra/openSUSE_11.3_KDE_Release_45
    and it works fine. However it doesn't allow for the functionality I already posted in my first post.

    Ok I figured out a way to solve the problem.
    Open Dolphin->Settings->Configure: Dolphin...->Services->Get new services...
    In the find field enter Dropbox and Dropbox ServiceMenu should pop up. Press the install button.

    It downloads a file here :
    Code:
    ~/.kde4/share/apps/servicemenu-download/124416-DropboxServiceMenu-0.15.3.tar.gz
    Unpack the file, enter the unpacked folder and run :
    Code:
    ./install-it.sh
    And at this point it should work
    SUSE Paste

    Thanks but I installed it in a bit different way. Why do You discourage the installation of kdropbox in your guide ?

    Well it's the first time I'm using dropbox but it seems to work fine. Got this version installed :
    Code:
    Repozytorium: @System
    Nazwa: kdropbox
    Wersja: 0.4.1-11.4
    Architektura: i586
    Dostawca: obs://build.opensuse.org/KDE
    Zainstalowano: Tak
    Status: aktualny
    Rozmiar po zainstalowaniu: 202,0 KiB
    Podsumowanie: KDE File Sharing
    Opis: 
    Dropbox is a Web-based file hosting service operated by Dropbox, Inc. which
    uses cloud computing to enable users to store and share files and folders with
    others across the Internet using file synchronization.
    What did not work for You so that I can check if it works here ?

    It might be because I use both Gnome and KDE on this machine and the two file manager integration packages didn't get on.
    So I ended up favouring the nautilus-dropbox

    So when I click the dropbox icon it opens nautilus in kde, but I don't mind. And I never usually do that anyway. I just open Dolphin or Konqueror, both of which have the service menu options for dropbox.

    It opens up properly in dolphin for me but I don't have GNOME. It may be a silly question but did You try tweaking this ?
