I'm using XUbuntu and was a bit saddened that I couldn't use Dropbox within Thunar file manager.
Can I make a custom context menu option to 'copy public link' in Thunar?
This solution works for me:
For me, it works like a charm, except that, when I click to "Open Dropbox Folder" from Dropbox panel applet, it opens Nautilus instead of Thunar.
edit: It is also useful to add a Dropbox folder link to Thunar's sidebar. This can be done simply by draging-'n'-droping Dropbox folder to the sidebar.
First you need to install xclip,
Now in Thunar click Edit>Configure custom actions, then click the green plus sign.
Under Name enter 'Copy Public Link', or something suited to yourself
Under Command enter
In the same window, under the Appearance Conditions tab, tick everything.
Now if you right click in Thunar you will see the dropbox option, I'd like to know if there's a way of limiting the option to just the public folder, that way it won't constantly be there in places it isn't needed.
