DropBox client on Raspberry Pi

DropBox installer client can be installed from source on Raspberry Pi.

The client expects GUI with nautilus installed which is not available by default on Pi. The installation however succeeds.

You will need to install libnautilus-extension-dev and python-docutils:

apt-get install libnautilus-extension-dev and python-docutils

Then install using:

./configure;make;sudo make install

However the whole process is in vain as it cannot install the daemon (server) dropbox with:

dropbox start -i

In the end you get the dreaded:

Error: Platform not supported

Would you like a solution — would you like to use Dropbox on Raspberry Pi?

Drop me a comment below and I may be able to help.
