Setup dropbox without X

Assume you are accessing your server remotely through SSH.

1. Download the package, say you are using Ubuntu


2. Install the package

$sudo dpkg -i *dropbox_1.4.0_amd64.deb

3. Start Dropbox

$dropbox start

4. You will get an url to link your computer here, copy-and-paste into your web-browser. Restart your dropbox, all set :]

$dropbox stop
$dropbox start

I tried to open the url with w3m or lynx inside the terminal but failed.
It seems they don’t support Javascript well.
