Installing Dropbox client on Linux

Objective

Installing the Dropbox client on Linux

Environment

Procedure

  1. First, activate your U-M account, if you have not already done so. Technically, this is not part of installing the client, but you will need to have an activated account for Dropbox to work. 
  2. Go to the Dropbox installation page and follow the instructions for a headless install. In most cases, you will be installing on a 64-bit device, so use that command. This installation goes into your home directory, so you will not need elevated privileges.
  3. Link to your U-M account when prompted. Additional help with this step is in this article.
  4.  After linking successfully, you should have the folder Dropbox (University of Michigan) in your home directory.
