Dropbox doesn’t exist in the normal Puppy Linux repositories as a .pet file so I was looking around for another way to install it on my Puppy Linux machine (it’s much easier to move pictures around this way).

It turns out that you can simply download the Dropbox app from PortableLinuxApps and run that on your Linux machine.

No hassle at all.

Some people suggest putting the binary file in /root/Startup so that it starts at boot but I decided not to do this since my target Dropbox folder is on an external HDD that I need to mount first.
