    Default How to install Dropbox in OpenSuse 11.4 64-bit

    I have a new install of OpenSuse 64-bit. I've stumbled around blindly and seem to have installed Dropbox using dropbox-lnx.x86_64-1.1.24.tar.gz. It apparently worked because I was able to enter successfully my Dropbox log-on information.

    I have no idea what to do next. There's no indication of any synchronisation in Dolphin. Dropbox installation in Ubuntu/Mint is a no-brainer but this has me stumped.

    Please note that I'm a complete OpenSuse/KDE newbie.

    The way I have dropbox setup now under Gnome (and the way I've used it in Fluxbox and XFCE) is I used the download from this page: TipsAndTricks/TextBasedLinuxInstall - Dropbox Wikiz

    Here's the links in case anyone else is wondering where to get the files.
    x86 download: http://www.dropbox.com/download/?plat=lnx.x86
    x86_64 download: http://www.dropbox.com/download/?plat=lnx.x86_64

    Extract that file and run ./dropboxd to start the daemon. You should be prompted with a graphical setup where it will need to download additional components and link your computer to the dropbox account.

    Once that's done, you'll need to make sure dropboxd is automatically run when you log into your desktop. The instructions on that page will detail the process a bit more.

    Why don't you use the dropbox from Contrib repo?

    I didn't even have the contrib repo setup on my machine. Plus, I had all of this installed in the home directory. When I was distro hopping it made syncing with dropbox so much easier.
