Debian 10 - Install Dropbox CLI
cd ~ && wget -O - "https://www.dropbox.com/download?plat=lnx.x86_64" | tar xzf -
Then run the dropbox daemon:
After a few seconds it will keep repeating the following message:
This computer isn't linked to any Dropbox account... Please visit https://www.dropbox.com/cli_link_nonce?nonce=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx 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.
