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.

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 3.0.3 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.

comment Programmatically sync dropbox without daemon running
Recent dropbox releases seem to report "Up to date" instead of "Idle". You might have to change that in your script if you are using an updated version.

comment Ubuntu 12.04 LTS: Error message “Failed to execute child process”
@user961627 As far as I know files on Windows partitions (i.e. NTFS/FAT partitions) are set to non-executable by default. You might want to look into finding a way to execute files on NTFS partitions. Please feel free to open a new question if you don't manage to find a solution.
