Installing from the Add/Remove programs results in an error that says to install it their way. So I used their instructions for 64 bit found here:
cd ~ && wget -O - "https://www.dropbox.com/download?plat=lnx.x86_64" | tar xzf -
Next, run the Dropbox daemon from the newly created .dropbox-dist folder.
Unfortunately for me to have dropbox running I have to type that in a terminal and keep it open because obviously closing the terminal closes the program. I would like to be able to run it without a terminal, I was unable to make a launcher using "~/.dropbox-dist/dropboxd", I'm still a noob in areas. Please help.
