Debian 10 - Install Dropbox CLI

cd ~ && wget -O - "" | tar xzf -

Then run the dropbox daemon:

. /$HOME/.dropbox-dist/dropboxd

After a few seconds it will keep repeating the following message:

This computer isn't linked to any Dropbox account...
Please visit to link this device.

Navigate to that URL in your browser and enter your dropbox username and password.

Once you have done that, you will see this message:

This computer is now linked to Dropbox. Welcome [Your Name Here]

That will setup a folder in your home directory called Dropbox with all your dropbox files syncing to it.
