Description:

dropbox-servicemenu-kde is a KDE service menu for Dropbox and functions as a wrapper around the Dropbox CLI.

Please note that this service menu only works for files which are in your Dropbox Public directory. The reason for this is that only files in the Public directory have a public URL :)

Klipper needs to be running in order for the "Copy Public URL to Klipper" option to work.

Installation:
1. chmod 755 install.sh
2. ./install.sh

The installation works by downloading the Dropbox python CLI from the Dropbox servers. It then copies the python CLI, the service menu and the icon to their required locations.

The installation is based on the assumption that your Dropbox folder is ~/Dropbox. If this is not the case, then edit install.sh and dropbox.desktop to reflect your Dropbox folder.




Changelog:

0.2:
+ Added option to copy Public URL to Klipper.
+ Removed icon because of trouble setting a relative path.
+ Uses kde4-config to find location of KDE directory.
+ Creates ServiceMenus directory if it doesn't exist.

0.1:
+ First Version

First, let me thank you for this - it is a shame to have to load half of gnome just to have that little dropbox icon in the systray. So, thanks.

The way this is implemented in Nautilus, though, looks a bit better to me. In nautilus you have a 'copy public link', and it goes directly to the clipboard, rather than appearing through a dialog. I think this could be an easy improvement

Thanks Rod :)

I have implemented the function that you suggested. It needs Klipper to be running to work though. Enjoy!

There is no need to load half Gnome to have the dropbox icon in the system tray.

Just follow this tutorial:

http://antrix.net/journal/techtalk/dropbox_kde.html

BTW: this is starting to be a nice app, I hope it improves and integrates more functions soon.

Thanks for the heads up Sciamano72 :)

Could you perhaps suggest some of the improvements and functions you would like to see integrated?

Okay...
Currently dropbox-servicemenu-kde functions only as a wrapper around the official Dropbox python CLI.

The CLI provides the following functions:

status - get current status of the dropboxd
help - provide help
puburl - get public url of a file in your dropbox
stop - stop dropboxd
start - start dropboxd
filestatus - get current sync status of one or more files
ls - list directory contents with current sync status

So any of those functions could easily be implemented. I'm considering writing a complete KDE version of the nautilus interface over the Christmas holidays but that is still on the cards ;)

I know, I was not complaining, just saying what I would like to see! :)
If you really make a KDE version of the Nautilus interface, I think most of the KDE community will love you :)

I didn't see it as complaining in any way :) I like the feedback and always like to hear how I can improve things...

Yes, I'm sure the KDE community would be very happy...I will see what I can do ;)

Ah yes, the problem is that you're running the install script from your home directory when the dropbox.desktop file is in the dropbox-servicemenu-kde directory.

To fix, cd into the dropbox-servicemenu-kde directory and then rerun the script.

For you this would be:

cd /home/dve/dropbox-servicemenu-kde/
./install.sh

Let me know if it works :)

 DropBox Icon

 
 by szosel on: Dec 29 2009
 
Score 50%

Is there a way to implement the file status in the icon of the files?

and second question: a way to show this menu only when i select a file/folder within the dropbox?

That's the thing nautilus, mac and windows offers - would be great to get something her.

I googled after this - there seems to be many people outside looking for an KDE solution.

Hi :)

Yes, getting the status of a file is definitely an option and will appear in the next version.

As for only having the menu show up for dropbox items, I'm not sure if that is possible given that dropbox-servicemenu-kde is a KDE service menu and thus is limited by the Desktop Entry specification [1]. If someone can suggest a way to do this I will be more than happy to implement it.

Also, in the next version the following features could possibly be implemented:

- get dropbox status
- stop the dropbox service
- start the dropbox service
- get the status of an individual file
- get the status of all files

Please let me know which features you would like to see and I'll do my best to get them into the next version and release that version as soon as possible.

 icons suggestion

IMHO you can add also icons this way:

Quote:
[Desktop Entry]
Type=Service
ServiceTypes=KonqPopupMenu/Plugin
MimeType=all/all;
Actions=getPublicURL;copyPublicURL;
X-KDE-Submenu=Dropbox
X-KDE-StartupNotify=false
X-KDE-Priority=TopLevel


[Desktop Action getPublicURL]
Name=Get Public URL
Icon=dropbox
Exec=kdialog --msgbox "`python ~/Dropbox/dropbox.py puburl %u`"

[Desktop Action copyPublicURL]
Name=Copy Public URL to Klipper
Icon=klipper
Exec=dbus-send --type=method_call --dest=org.kde.klipper /klipper org.kde.klipper.klipper.setClipboardContents string:"`python ~/Dropbox/dropbox.py puburl %u`"


if someone knows how can be very useful that this menu is shown only when the path of the selected file/folder starts with the public dir path.

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
