I'm not getting the option to create a shared link via the context menu on my desktop

Explorer | Level 4

I uploaded some new files to my DropBox account.  When I right click on one, there is no option to create a link nor to share a link.  I am using Linux Mint on a desktop and have used DropBox with this OS for years and have never had this problem.

Hi @csperry, thanks for joining the Community!

 

Currently, only Ubuntu and Fedora are officially supported for the Dropbox desktop application, so the amount of support I can provide would be limited.

 

Are you running one of the following desktop environments for Mint? If so, try reinstalling the app without uninstalling it first to see if this helps.

 

Let me know how it goes!
