Ignore File using CLI: "attr" command not found

Explorer | Level 4

Hi everyone,

When I try to run the following command in Ubuntu 20.04

 

attr -s com.dropbox.ignored -V 1 /home/user/Dropbox/myfile.pdf


I get this error message

 

zsh: command not found: attr

 

Can anyone help me?

Hi @Valravn, thanks for posting on the Community!

 

As this is specifically a Linux command that isn't found on your system, this isn't related to the Dropbox command itself.

 

I'll leave this thread open for other users to comment their suggestions!
