Dropbox Enterprise and Linux

Explorer | Level 3

Dear All,

does anybody know whether Dropbox will support Personal and Enterprise client integration in Linux? And when?

Please, see also https://www.dropbox.com/en/help/business/pair-accounts-all-devices?_locale_specific=en

Best, Daniele

I dont know the answer, sorry.

I dont believe the client itself is in any danger of being discontinued, so I imagine its more to do with the variety of different Linux versions that are available - some of which may not have the coding and API available to do SmartSync.

Hi,

Mark is correct. From a technical, and an engineering perspective, Linux won't share all the features that are available on Mac and Windows. In this case, I'm afraid using two accounts has never been supported. You may of course link either to your Linux account.

Hope this helps you.

No, it doesnt, sorry.
To use two accounts you need to use a Mac or Windows.
