I'm running Stretchdog on 2 PCs, and want to share documents between them. How do I get Dropbox to start automatically at system startup? The "Start Dropbox on System Startup" feature in Dropbox's Preferences doesn't seem to work. I've also tried putting a "dropbox start" script into /root/Startup but that takes me to the Dropbox web page and wants me to "link my PC" every time I log on!

Any assistance would be appreciated. Thanks!

Hi friend,
I don't use Dropbox so I can't help you with the question though.
Putting script in startup folder is the way to go, but it seems the script needs something else.

Reading on web suggests, if you want to control Dropbox from command line or script, you need a Python script, called dropbox.py.
Then you can use it in script.
Need more searching though.
