comment Script to view office documents in Microsoft Office Online
@jbrock Yeah, a custom action should work. The script doesn't use any Nautilus-specific calls or variables. As long as Thunar passes the file path to the script everything should be fine.

comment Is there an equivalent program to the windows explorer for Ubuntu?
@John While Thunar might appear superior in some ways I can assure you that Nautilus has a more advanced featureset, especially where connection to remote servers and extensions are concerned.

comment how to using dropbox-cli?
Make sure to check out 'Programmatically sync dropbox without daemon running' to learn how to perform a one-off dropbox sync.

comment How can I control Dropbox sync programmatically?
Even though this is the older question, I've marked it as a duplicate of this one because the other question features more detailed and useful answers.

comment Dropbox 3.0.4 ignoring local themes / missing notification icon
Same issue here. To be frank, I've gotten quite annoyed with Dropbox' antics lately. The daemon has a pretty significant performance and memory footprint on my system. Add to this these new cosmetic issues and I think I am done with autostarting Dropbox. If you are looking for a different solution check out this dropbox sync script. You can use it to perform a one-time sync. No need to have the ugly daemon running permanently.
