Enable personal & work dropbox on Linux

Hello Dropbox team!

My lab and I predominantly run Linux, and our university has Dropbox for business. It would be great if we could have our personal and work dropboxes simultaneously, but this seems to be unsupported:

I'd like to request this feature. Would be super useful!!

Same thing with my office. Extending the support for simultaneous use of personal Dropbox and work Dropbox on Linux devices would be much appreciated!

I have two dropbox account; one at work and a personal one which are linked together.  My preferred OS is linux and I would very much like to have equivalent functionality with Win and OSX that allows the dropbox client to access both accounts directly without having to logout/login.

You can already do that if one account is a Dropbox for Business or Teams account - you cannot do it with two Basic/Pro accounts.

I can login to both accounts on a browser, but I don't see how both accounts link to separate dropboxes on my linux computer (unlike Win or OS.  Can you point me to linux instructions?

Same Here! Help doens't provide any valuable solution.

"Work with personal account opened on browser and app synched by work account" ...

Really?

Maybe  open a remote ftp folder with sync feature offer a better and cheaper solution!

I think that dropbox team, can do a lot better!
My company and me trust them, but we need some good, reasonable and business solution for linux user!

For universities, linux is often the standard choice. My university has just purchased a universitty wide buisness account, but no one can sync both their personal and buisness account. Please do add this feature soon.
