Linux client for Dropbox Passwords

Linux client for Dropbox Passwords

Would be great to see a Linux client for Dropbox Passwords! Currently, the browser plugin / extension doesn't work on Linux since a desktop app is required.

Will the extension be available for Chromium?

Hi @Emma Following your response from Monday https://www.dropboxforum.com/t5/Dropbox-ideas/Linux-client-for-Dropbox-Passwords/idc-p/512843/highli...

 

you still needs to have Dropbox password installed on your computer in order to install the browser extension... And you can't install it on Linux computers...

Hey @bonafidehan and @esventat, I just wanted to check back with you and ask if you could send us a screenshot of the error message, just to have a better visual of it?

Hi, I was able to install the Chrome extension by searching on the Chrome web store and I was able to associate it with my account.

@bonafidehan @esventat could you try this in incognito mode or logged out of your Dropbox account and let me know if you get the same result?

Thanks!

@bonafidehan @esventat I took this to our engineering team after I posted this, and they identified that it was a bug, but one they could resolve there and then. So, the fix was deployed last night 🎉

Could you both try again and let me know if this is resolved for you? Thank you!

Yes, a Linux client for Dropbox Passwords would be very helpful.
