I would like to install motion on my ltsp fat clients, which actually works well. What I don't know is how to upload the created files via dropbox. Can someone point me in the right direction?

I tried to install dropbox from within the fat client, but the user has no sufficient rights and I think it would get lost at reboot anyway.

I tried to install from within the chroot, but that did not work. I installed it in the main (auto login) account on the server but you apparently can not inclued subfolders from other users accounts. I tried mount a nfs folder from the chroot for the fat client users to put the files somewhere within the files of the main account on the server so that its dropbox installation can upload it, but with no success.
