Is there a desktop app for Ubuntu 20.04 LTS? If so, what are the proper installation steps?
I found and installed dropbox_2020.03.04_amd64.deb that results in a dropbox icon at the upper right corner of the screen. This gives me access to my dropbox folder and a few settings, but seems quite unlike the Windows and IOS Dropbox apps. I searched and found many dated discussions but nothing recent that spells out a straight-forward installation on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS. For instance, is there a repository to add so the installation can proceed via the Ubuntu Software app?
Jay, yes, my Ubuntu 20.04 LTS system meets the specified Dropbox minimum system requirements. The component of Dropbox that I found after installation is a folder view that generally seems to function properly in that files are synced across devices, including this one. What I am not finding are any ways to manage permissions of specific files and sub folders, account details, starting and stopping the app (Dropbox folder), etc. For instance, how do I set this Linux instance of Dropbox to keep local copies of specific files for offline use, when not connected to the Internet? It seems, instead, that most account management must be done from the web site and most local app management must be done via command line. Other than the obvious Dropbox folder view that I already discovered, are there any other Dropbox application components that can be installed directly, without building/installing from source?
