KDropbox is an application for K desktop environment, which offers nearly the same features as the official Dropbox Linux application.
Dropbox is one of the most popular file sharing, syncing and backup service today. But the official Dropbox application integrates only with the Nautilus file manager, which in turn is available only with the Gnome desktop in Linux distros. So, if you are running any Linux distribution with KDE as the desktop manager, KDropbox is the application for you to use Dropbox directly from your desktop.
Some of the prominent features of KDropbox application are:
- It displays the real-time status of your Dropbox.
- It can open your Dropbox folder on your desktop.
- It supports many languages like English, Polish and Spanish.
KDropbox comes with .rpm as well as .deb packages. So it can be installed flawlessly on Mandriva, Fedora, OpenSUSE, Debian, Ubuntu etc.
KDropbox requires official Dropbox daemon to run in the background. Step-by-step instructions for the installation of the official Dropbox application as well as KDropbox can be found here.
