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

 Check for xdg-open

 by okurz on: Nov 21 2010
Score 50%

Nice work!
Unfortunately, xdg-open (at least in version 1.0.2, as I have it) has problems with the line "xdg-open </dev/null" showing the usage message and return exit code 1, so not suitable for checking. "xdg-open --version >/dev/null" works. Maybe you can use that?

Also, I am on ubuntu and don't have an "python2" executable so I had to create a symlink to make it work.

Check for python2 is my mistake, it should check just for python (i was testing it on my system and accidentally put wrong script in tar.gz).

As for the xdg-open, i think i'll remove this check. KDE depends on xdg-utils so i think its not necessary.

Thanks for informing me about those issues, i'll upload new version asap!

 `kde4-config not found

Hi there, thanks a lot for making this handing tool on KDE4! Just what we need!

I've just installed it with the shell script, and then the service menu is appearing. However, when using "Generating public link...", I got a message "`kde4-config not found", and the notifier says "It looks that some dependencies are missing for this". Do you have a clue for this? I'm using Kubuntu 10.04, and I use zh-TW locale.

It seems you're missing one of these dependencies:

- sqlite3
- python
- kdialog
- klipper

Make sure that they are installed in your system.

Check via console:
$which kde4-config
$which kde-config
No result? The you're KDE4 installation is not complete.
kde(4)-config is part of kdelibs4-core

Could you please try to remove the dropbox scripts that you moved to /usr/bin and then install dropbox-servicemenu using install-it.sh script placed inside the dropbox-servicemenu tarball?
Also make sure that you've got all dependencies installed:

- sqlite3
- python
- kdialog
- klipper

sorry for the late answer, install.sh really did it, I've tried that in the first place but it didn't seem to work, that was why I was copying the files manually, but now that I removed them and run install.sh again everything runs great.

Thank you and keep up the good work..

 In openSUSE 11.4

Use F15 rpm

Install from the terminal with

rpm -ivh <package-name>

It kept informing me of missing deps, only one I couldn't satisfy is kdebase (it's kdebase4 now)
So Once at this point use --nodeps to force the install
It works

 A couple of small issues

 by Martox12 on: Nov 28 2011
Score 50%

Hi ...

I think there are a couple of small issues :

1) Whenever the object to share in Public directory has spaces within the name the utility delivers “%20” instead of “ “. For instance, for object “test 01.png" the utility delivers “http://dl.dropbox.com/u/<dropbox id>/test%2001.png” instead of “http://dl.dropbox.com/u/<dropbox id>/test 01.png” .

2) The utility doesn't seem to be operative for “Photos” directory (http://www.dropbox.com/help/18) .

Besides these small issues, the utility is very, very useful ... Thank you about that.

 0.15.5 ? ;)

here's a small patch that enables you to install this globally(e.g. to "/usr") and/or locally (e.g. to "~/.kde4").

Hope it would be useful for new release :)

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.
