i tried to install dropbox on my openSUSE 11.1(KDE 4.0) from a tar.bz2. After i extracted it to a folder Dropbox in Desktop. I got this error trying to compile.

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.
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…
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.
