Desktop app (with syncing) for devices with ARM processors

Desktop app (with syncing) for devices with ARM processors

I would really like to see a client for the Raspberry Pi, or any ARM based client that supports the live syncing that dropbox does so well.

I too am a "hobbyist toy computer" user, as has been elsewhere called the RPI, and would really appreciate a client for my computer.

I use a Raspberry Pi 2 as my main desktop computer and the lack of ARM support means I can't use dropbox like I do at work. Am now going to investigate using Bittorrent Sync as suggested above.

They've sold 8 million Raspberry Pis so far and hoping to do another 4 mill this year. About time we had an ARM client...

Yea, recompile:

make ARCH=arm

Curt G.: if you go to https://www.dropbox.com/install?os=lnx you'll find several flavors available on this DropBox page. I found it with a DuckDuckGo search for dropbox on linux.

Robert S.: "That said, if any hobbyist toy computer enthusiasts want to step up on these..." makes you sound like the supercillious horse's patootie you probably are. To lump all small-computer users into the "hobbyist toy computer enthusiasts" category reflects your misunderstanding of both the subject computers and their users. By the way, you punctuation sucks, too.

Walt, those downloads support mainstream x86 & x86-64 desktop platforms.

The Raspberry Pi hobbyist computer is based on ARM. there is no native client for it.

I use a Pi at home too, and everyday there is more people with one, why wouldn't Dropbox implement an ARM version?

They have dropbox for Android which is ARM and therefore it would be trivial for them to release a version for Raspberry Pi.
