Link account on Linux from command line

Link account on Linux from command line

I am working on a remote server for which I can not launch a browser. Is there a command line way to link my account and set up the folder(s) to sync?

You’ll need to use a CLI browser like Lynx, or simply copy and paste the link generated on a computer which does have a browser.
 
Hope this helps!

dropbox start --link

This will give you a link that you can click and link to your account.
