^Didn't test this.Windows link: http://wiki.dropbox....pboxAddons/DropboxenDirect Download link: http://dl.getdropbox...1/code/Dropboxen.zipLinux:
HOME=$HOME/.dropbox-alt /usr/bin/dropbox start -i
This will launch the Dropbox initial setup for the folder called .dropbox-alt which does not exist, so you'll be presented with the initial configuration. You can create a new account or use an existing one.
If you already had a Dropbox instance running, now there should be 2!Run at Start Up:
sudo gedit /etc/rc.local
paste the following line just before the "exit 0" last line:
su username -c "HOME=$HOME/.dropbox-alt /usr/bin/dropbox start"
If the file doesn't have "exit 0" on the last line, add it yourself. Basically, this is how the last two lines in the /etc/rc.local file should look like:
su username -c "HOME=$HOME/.dropbox-alt /usr/bin/dropbox start"Manual start-up:
HOME=$HOME/.dropbox-alt /usr/bin/dropbox start
Note 1: the instructions for Mac OSX also include instructions for Linux but the Linux instructions are not entirely correct, so for Linux, use the instructions in this post!
Note 2: It seems you cannot login to the Dropbox website when running multiple Dropbox instances. However, by right clicking the Dropbox icon in the notification area and selecting "Launch Dropbox Website", you will be automatically logged in.
Note 3: Using the Dropbox link on top of the post to create a Dropbox account, you will get an extra 250 MB for your account; I will also get an extra 250 MB.
