How to get Dropbox on Ubuntu Linux – Guide

Dropbox is one of the most popular cloud storage services available for Linux and other operating systems. In fact, Dropbox is one of the first services to provide a native Linux application. It still supports 32-bit Linux systems, which is also a commendable job.

in this beginner tutorial, I will show you the steps to install Dropbox on Ubuntu. The steps are very simple, but some sites make this unnecessarily complicated.

Install Dropbox on Ubuntu Desktop

Let’s see the installation procedure step by step.

  • Get Dropbox Installer for Ubuntu
  • Dropbox provides DEB files for its installer. Go to the download section of your website:

    And download the appropriate DEB file. Assuming you are using 64-bit Ubuntu, get the deb file for the 64-bit version.

    Install Dropbox Installer

    The deb file you downloaded is just a Dropbox installer. The actual Dropbox installation starts later, similar to the Steam installation on Ubuntu.

    To install the downloaded deb file, double click on it or right click and select open with software installation.

    The software center will open and you can click install button.

    Wait for the installation to finish.

    Start the Dropbox installation

    The Dropbox installer is now installed. Press the Windows key (also known as the superkey), look for Dropbox and click on it.

    On the first release, it shows two pop-ups. One about restarting Nautilus (the file explorer in Ubuntu) and one about installing Dropbox.

    Click on Restart Nautilus / Close (in the pop-up Nautilus) or OK (no pop-up installer) starts downloading and installing the Dropbox client. If ‘Nautilus Restart’ does not close when clicking Close button, click on the x button.

    Wait for the Dropbox installation to complete.

    Oh! Nautilus restart is required because Dropbox adds some extras features how to show sync status in file explorer.

    After installing Dropbox, it should take you to the Dropbox login page automatically, or you can click the Dropbox icon at the top and select the login option.

    In fact, this is how you’ll access Dropbox settings in the future.
