Dropbox ServiceMenu

Minimum required   KDE 4.x
Downloads:  9216
Submitted:  May 9 2010

Dropbox ServiceMenu is a servicemenu which allows easy access to most of Dropbox features. It uses Dropbox CLI to generate public urls, and pyndexer to allow sharing directories in public folder.

* Copy Public URL to clipboard
* Share folder (via web browser)
* Copy file/directory to public folder and paste the URL to clipboard
* Move file/directory to public folder and paste the URL to clipboard
* Support for sharing directories in public folder using pyndexer ( http://dl.dropbox.com/u/552/pyndexer/index.html )
* Send generated public url via default email client and GMail (via webbrowser)
* View previous versions of file (via web browser)
* Encrypt directory listing with password (only works for directories in public folder)
* Automatic detection of Dropbox directory path

1. Copy .desktop files to ~/.kde4/share/kde4/services/ServiceMenus/
2. Copy content of dropbox-script to your $PATH - e.g. /usr/bin or /usr/local/bin

or run installation script (it will install scripts and .desktop files in ~/.kde4/share/kde4/services/ServiceMenus):

or if you're running Fedora:
1. Install following RPM http://magnu5.fedorapeople.org/repo/magnu5-1.0-1.fc13.noarch.rpm
2. Now run following command: su -c 'yum install dropbox-servicemenu'

Thanks to Magnus Tuominen for providing Fedora RPMs.

or if you're running openSUSE:
You can install dropbox-servicemenu from KDE:Extras repository.

Additional dependencies:
- dropbox
- klipper
- kdialog
- sqlite3
- python
- python-m2crypto (required for encrypting directory listing)
- xdg-utils
- uudecode (can be found in sharutils package)
- recode
- perl

Currently translated to following languages:
Fully translated: Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, French, German, Italian, Lithuanian, Polish, Russian, Spanish, Traditional Chinese (Taiwan)

Not fully translated: (.desktop files, dropbox_menu_translations.sh): Portuguese, Turkish

if you want to translate this servicemenu then feel free to contact me via private message.

KNOWN ISSUES: This servicemenu requires python2. If your distro uses python3 as main python binary then this servicemenu won't work. In order to make it work you'll have to do some "sed magic" e.g. sed 's/python/python2/g' on dropbox_menu.sh and .py scripts, assuming that your distro provides python version 2 as python2.


- Danish translation updated thanks to Ole Holm Frandsen

- Support for Dropbox client >= 1.2
- Dropbox folder location is now determined by get_dropbox_folder.sh (written by Andrew Scheller)
- Dropbox-servicemenu now requires uudecode (can be found in sharutils package), recode and perl to be installed
- Shareable links support removed (currently i do not know how to get the user key from dropbox database)

- Dutch translation added thanks to Ruben Van Laerhoven

- Hungarian translation added thanks to Akos Toth

- German translation updated thanks to Felix Mauch
- Portuguese translation updated thanks to Ricardo Fernandes

- Fix python dependency check
- Removed xdg-open dependency check (KDE depends on xdg-utils, so it shouldn't be necessary)

- Added dependencies check

- Russian translation updated thanks to Stanislav Kosolapov

- Lithuanian translation updated thanks to Donatas G.

- Spanish translation updated thanks to Axel

- Italian translation updated - thanks to NevidS Sogaro

- German translation updated - thanks to Felix Mauch
- Traditional Chinese (Taiwan) translation added - thanks to Ray Chen

- Italian translation updated - thanks to NevidS Sogaro
- Czech translation updated - thanks to Pavel Fric
- French translation updated - thanks to Samuel Girard

- Add support for dropbox's new sharing model (dropbox 0.8 or higher required) - http://forums.dropbox.com/topic.php?id=21441&replies=155
- Merge "Copy public URL to klipper" with dropbox's new sharing model - if you use dropbox 0.8 or higher then you can generate public links for directories and files outside your Public folder

- Second attempt to make this servicemenu compatible with KHNS - scripts are now placed in servicemenu directory, install script doesn't require user interaction

- Spanish translation updated - thanks to Omar Campagne Polaino

- Removed wrong line in previous version thus "copy file to public.." was broken :P

- First attempt to make this servicemenu compatible with KHNS

- Small bugfix

- Use freedesktop notifications instead of kdialog, should be less obtrusive - feel free to share your opinions about this (is it better or worse?)
- Move script translations to separate file

- German translation updated

You just need to edit as sudo your dropbox-menu.sh.

Mine is located at /usr/share/kde4/services/ServiceMenus/dropbox-scripts/dropbox-menu.sh.

Search this line (line 37 in my system):


And change it to:


Seems like Dropbox changed something and broke get_dropbox_folder.sh file, and when you try to move and generate public URL tries to move to /Public instead of ~/Dropbox/Public/

Please note this is just a workaround. If your Dropbox folder is not located in your home directory, just point to the correct path.

Probably is better explained here: http://chakraos.org/forum/viewtopic.php?pid=82217#p82217

I did this change, and copying/moving works, but generating public URL not. It says: "Couldn't get public URL. Unknown Error". It has worked for me before. I'm have Dropbox version 1.6.2.

Found the reason for this. Forgot my Dropbox -dir is actually a symlink to real dir. I changed that as dropbox_path and now it works. I just can't "generate URL" if I go to Public -dir via symlink.

 Dropbox folder in Dolphin

 by steveredshaw on: Apr 15 2015

I am not very technical so am struggling to follow instructions for installing this Dropbox service. I presume a Dropbox folder is meant to appear within the Home folder when installation is complete. I don't have one, I think I need some more detailed, but simple instructions....

 any updates on the way?

 by farcus on: May 20 2015

Dropbox dropped support for public folders back in 2012 so if you have a dropbox account created after that then the ability to create links in the service menu doesn't work. If you try the error "You can generate public URL only for files and directories that are in your dropbox public folder" is generated.

When are we likely to see an update to the servicemenu that will address this issue? - it has been a few years now.

 fix get_dropbox_folder

 by tcat on: Jul 9 2015
Score 50%

To fix get_dropbox_folder.sh, you need prepend some line to get_dropbox_folder function:

function get_dropbox_folder {
if [ -f "$HOME/.dropbox/info.json" ]; then
DROPBOX_FOLDER=$(grep -P -o -w '(?<="path"\: ")[^\"]+' $HOME/.dropbox/info.json)

I have installed this last pasckage and the menu appears normally but since Public folders are not an option for free users, without and update it's not quite as useful.
Hope we will see an update cause it's a very good feature to have.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
