As you know Dropbox doesn’t work on fedora 37 through normal install
I did so
cd ~ && wget -O - “https://www.dropbox.com/download?plat=lnx.x86_64” | tarxzf-
After that, start the Dropbox daemon from the newly created .dropbox-dist folder.
How now to organize autostart at login?
Many thanks for the help!
One idea is creating a script in /etc/X11/Xsession.d/ that gets executed when you login.
I am new user.
On my laptop with XFCE i did it via system tools login and autorun. And that works perfect, but I can’t find same options in gnome tweaks.
Maybe i can do that with .autorun?
I also try to do . desktop file and put it to autorun folder, but that doesn’t wok.
So, I made a desktop file:
I put that file to /.config/autostart
And It does not work
But in case if I put ~/.dropbox-dist/dropboxd in terminal - it works!
What is the problem? And What I did wrong?
Thank you for help!
Unless the forum software masks characters, the paths in your desktop file refer to the root directory, which is for sure not correct. Prepend the tilde character or the full home directory path.
By the way: the old dropbox rpm does not install because of a missing dependency to nautilus. The rpm contains a python script which can be extracted by e.g. “ark” or another archive manager. Of course the script has dependencies to python and pyhon3-gobject (rpm -qpR nautilus-dropbox…rpm) but if they are there, it works in F37 with dropbox icon and autostart option.
I did it like this:
GenericName=File storage and sharing
I do not know how to fix that…
This is the correct file for autostart and work!
username - change to your username! And It work now =)
