Re: nemo-dropbox???

Have you tried just installing Mint's .deb directly?

I haven't tried it myself but apt won't let you install it if there are dependency issues.

I tried installing the deb package from Mint Debbie on Beowulf today, and after the first 3 install failures it looked like I was headed into dependency hell, so I quickly gave up.

Re: nemo-dropbox???

^ Were you using dpkg?

# apt install /full/path/to/.deb

^ That will install any dependencies automatically, providing they are available from the current sources.

No I don't usually install debs with dpkg on my personal machines, I prefer apt. It wanted to pull in a bunch of cinnamon desktop and other Minty stuff, and I couldn't be bothered any longer. I did not need it to run, I was just curious to see if I could easily install it with the one package. After the third failure and asking for more and more packages I grew bored with the whole endeavor.
