Install Dropbox in CentOS 7
Posted on 09/13/2014

Install Dropbox via command line

The Dropbox daemon works fine on all 32-bit and 64-bit Linux servers. To install, run the following command in your Linux terminal.

Download & install dropbox locally

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.

~/.dropbox-dist/dropboxd

If you're running Dropbox on your server for the first time, you'll be asked to copy and paste a link in a working browser to create a new account or add your server to an existing account. Once you do, your Dropbox folder will be created in your home directory. Download this CLI script to control Dropbox from the command line. For easy access, put a symlink to the script anywhere in your PATH.

I typically setup an alias in my .bashrc file to start dropbox from the command line

alias="~/.dropbox-dist/dropboxd &"
You can also create an icon in the gnome application menu, using the same command
