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

`kde4-config --localprefix`
"`kde4-config --localprefix`"

and modify install-it.sh
"`kde4-config --localprefix`/share/
"`kde4-config --localprefix`share/

then sudo ./install-it.sh
close dolphin.
open dolphin.
then dropbox-menu will work well.

Thank you for this! I've been using KDE and Dropbox for so long I forgot entirely about the possibility of integration with Dolphin.

 Dropbox 404 while sharing

 by thomi on: Aug 30 2012

great job this service menu, but seems there are changings on Dropbox website.
If i rightclick on a folder in Dolphin that is shared and select "Dropbox / Share this folder..." then i get a 404 on the Dropbox Website. The url that will be opened:

You can rightclick on the Dropbox try icon and click on "Open Dropbox Folder", nautilus will start. Then you can also click on the shared folder and use "Share this folder.." and get to this url "https://www.dropbox.com/home/path/to/shared/folder" and the share option dialog will be automatically started..

Hpe this can help to improve Dolphin Dropbox ServiceMenu ;)

I also get this error - it would be good if somebody fixed this problem.

The solution is easy:
1) Edit the installed dropbox_menu.sh file with a Text Editor. My favorite is nano on the command line.
2) Look for the only text instance of "share_existing" (without the quotes) and replace it with "home" (again without the quotes)
3) Save the file with the original name and permissions.
4) You're done :)

 "Generate public URL" doesn't work

 by oshunluvr on: Oct 16 2012

I continually get the error "You can generate public URL only for files and directories that are in your Dropbox Public folder."

The file in question is in the Dropbox Public folder.

Kubuntu 12.04

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.
