[HOWTO] Dropbox (CLI) in OMV

  • I can not get the script running after a restart too.

    I get the following

    and the script is exact the same as the one attached above with user 'root'
    the application runs once I place the start command manually, and updates the dropbox folder.
    though on status I receive this

    root@openmediavault:~# /etc/init.d/dropbox status
    [: 67: 6693: unexpected operator
    dropboxd for USER root: running (pid 6693

    i would appreciate any help.

  • i have set it up the following way

    Add the following line to /etc/apt/sources.list.

    deb http://linux.dropbox.com/debian squeeze main

    To import our GPG keys into your apt repository, perform the following command from your terminal shell:
    $ sudo apt-key adv --keyserver pgp.mit.edu --recv-keys 5044912E

    apt-get update
    apt-get install dropbox

    copied the init.d script from the link in this topic as well point 13 and 14

    then i used the script of this page:

    which is amazingly handy after you have followed the steps and created your core-api etc you can do:

    root@nas:~# droptobox list
    > Listing "/"... DONE
    [D] AMD_error_handling
    [D] -------
    [D] --------
    [F] --------
    [D] MIT
    [D] Photos
    [D] Public
    [D] Set of Books

    hope this helps, you can take this even a step further and create a dropbox chooser and copy the javascript code in the OMV webserver plugin ;-)

  • Quote from "tekkbebe"

    I saw there is a .deb file (32bit and 64bit). Is there a reason no one has tried these?

    the normal download uses this file already you can install it in different ways

    but the easiest is to use the droptobox with the api see above link to connect and share etc

  • Does this have a Web interface to view and download or upload files?

    if so, can someone please share a screenshot of such web interface?
