19 How to install dropbox and safeguard all your documents in the cloud – any desktop

Check the version of Dropbox on
AUR and 3Party repo
Install the most recent version

Since we use dropbox as a service constantly on all our installations of all the desktops we have added dropbox to the 3party repo. This version will not be auto updated. It is a manual job. One we tend to forget. It is not that important anyway. Dropbox will keep working whether it is version x or y.

The advantage of having a 3party repo is the installation time. It will be faster as a build from AUR.

You decide to install it from aur or from 3party repo.
Check the version number.

sudo pacman -S dropbox

yay -S dropbox

You can either create your very own ArcoLinuxB Plasma ISO following this tutorial or download it from Sourceforge. (ArcoLinuxB-plasma-18.11.2.ISO of 4.3 GB – games included)

2. ArcoLinuxD Plasma

You can also use the ArcoLinuxD ISO and then install Plasma with the help of the github scripts. This will not be an exact copy of the ISO.
