My brother wanted a quick explanation on how to create an executable to start Dropbox. While I was helping him he was kind enough to mock my freakishly awesome IBM Model M Unicomp keyboard… the greatest keyboard in the world. This setup is designed to work the the local tar.gz install of Dropbox on Linux and NOT the rpm based install (that requires Gnome for the file manager.)
Create a new file in your ~/bin directory called startdropbox.sh with the following content
After you have saved the file make the file executable by typeing
chmod 755 ~/bin/startdropbox.sh
Now you can start up dropbox by clicking on that icon at any time.
AND I LOVE MY CLICKY KEYBOARD BITCHES!!!
