Linux support for multiple accounts.

New member | Level 1
New member | Level 1

Hey guys.  I'm sorry to start a new post, but I didn't see any that addressed my question.

I have two DB accounts (personal and work) and the work account is DB for business.  I see here (https://www.dropbox.com/help/4238) that the Linux client does not support multiple accounts.

Is there a plan to add support for multiple accounts for the Linux client?

I love DB and have used it for some time, but this could be a deal breaker for me as I only run Linux on all my computers.

Business + Personal on Desktop in Linux

I see that the feature to have both business and personal accounts signed in on the desktop PC is available for Mac and Windows, https://www.dropbox.com/help/4238. Are there any plans to add this feature for Linux and if so what might be the timeline? Thank you

Also interested in the status of Linux and multiple dropbox accounts, business and personal.

This is unfortunate, yet. I too use linux on all my work and home computer and supposedly can't use both personal and work account. It shouldn't be a rocket science to support linux.

I'm suprised this is not supported already, I think it's high time we have this feature...

Hello @zbisho,

 

This is not yet supported and we appreciate your feedback. I'll pass on to the team your feedback from here -  what I can say is that our developers work hard so we can provide more features with each Dropbox release. 

 

Thanks!

Bumping thanks to just running into the "work" account thing one of my recent Dropbox installs recently presented. I'll be honest, I didn't know​ this was a feature I needed and I'm not fully convinced now - I've used my personal account for work features from hosting files to sharing folders for collaborative projects and haven't really ever run into any problems just keeping separate folders for things, and my work life has always been BYOD contact work. But I've always been impressed with Dropbox on Linux keeping feature parity with other platforms (even supporting CLI interaction for headless applications) while things like Google Drive don't even offer a first party desktop client beyond an FTP address.

 

So, sounding off to say I hope this is being looked at, because the broad cross platform support is one of the things that really impresses me about the service. 

 

Sorry for the possibly needless necro. Sort of a quiet vent, I guess. = /

Hello,

 

It would be a really nice feature to be able to use both dropbox personal and business at the same time in the Linux Client.

Is there any progress on that?

 

Thanks in advance for your feedback.

 

Kind regards
