No, that's for the nautilus file manager. we use Thunar file manager. You could try the instructions at the bottom of this article - http://www.webupd8.org/2012/08/how-to-install-dropbox-in-xubuntu-and.html after 'Update (July 3, 2014)' though I have no idea if it works still.

Do you get any Dropbox context help menu choices as seen in the image here?  http://imgur.com/XjOlcvf, which was taken from https://www.dropbox.com/help/19

Got it.  This time I used the Install Updates tool.  Checked for the .dropbox folder.  It wasn't there.  Went to Synaptic and removed the Nautilus-Dropbox package.  Rebooted.  Installed Dropbox via Lite Software.  Opened Dropbox.  Got this popup:  http://imgur.com/84tQqKm, and from there was prompted for login credentials.

Thanks.

Before I saw your message tonight I had just done an update via the terminal.  I did it again and then all the other things I said, but I'm going for it again.  This time with the gui update.  Standby.

That tells me you haven't done Install Updates first. You need to do that first. You're going to have to remove any trace of Dropbox as well. Then install it via Lite Software.

I take it you did Install Updates first as instructed?

I uninstalled.  Went to home folder.  Hit Ctrl H.  Looked for the .dropbox folder.  There was not one.  I rebooted, and reinstalled using Lite Software.  Same result of nothing happening except an authentication window showing up after around 30 seconds after I clicked on the dropbox icon. 

BTW, I'm away from my desktop.  I have a fresh install on my laptop, and I did the above.  I've attached a system report for the record.

LL has taken the initiative here and are providing Dropbox via our own repo. Do Install Updates, then Lite Software to get it.

Same problem.  Can't access the dropbox folder.  And no indicator in the panel.  Been using the Dropbox website in the interim.

A friend's laptop I worked on two weeks ago seemed to have youtube video trouble.  Working on it now.  Took it down to 32bit LL 2.4 from 64 bit.  That helped with a different friend's laptop, but not this one.  Furthermore, the wifi doesn't work as well with this 32bit version.  May take it back to 64bit in the morning and just encourage her to use Minitube for youtube viewing.
