    Question Dropbox file manager extension for Lubuntu

    Hello all,

    I'm using Lubuntu 13.10 and just installed the Dropbox client and set it up. I notice that using Lubuntu's default file manager (PCManFm) I'm unable to right-click files inside my Dropbox folder and have the Dropbox context menu show up. The "copy public URL" functionality was really useful and there doesn't seem any way now for me get the public link of Dropbox file from PCManFM.

    Is there any alternative at all or must I install Nautilus and then the Dropbox Nautilus extension?

    I don't see the "copy public URL" functionality with Thunar as file manager either.

    Yeah. It seems that only 'nautilus-dropbox-extension' has this, and I guess those on other desktops are left high and dry. Perhaps the dropbox CLI can do this, but it won't be as convenenient as right-clicking.

    @santosh83, just search for "thunar dropbox custom action". You'll get a lot of nice hits. I don't need this feature and so won't be looking into it but as far as Thunar goes, here are two related links:
    http://pclosmag.com/html/Issues/201207/page13.html
    and
    http://askubuntu.com/questions/27793...e-manager-xfce

    I'm going on about Thunar but I know you asked about PCManFM! Here's one link:

    and one from Crunchbang:
