I saw on identi.ca that you were looking for a Dropbox service menu for Dolphin. Anyway, I was looking for the same and couldn’t find one so I created one myself. It’s available at http://kylewilliams.co.za/code/dropbox-servicemenu-kde

Hi Kyle Williams,
Thanks for the heads up. I saw that someone dented about a Dropbox service menu on identi.ca in the kde group – maybe it was you?
The service menu works good, but I noted some small things that could be improved. I’ll post them in a comment on your blog.

Thanks for the feedback. I will make the changes you recommended on my blog. Regarding the service menu not working for you – in what way did it not work?
Nope, the identi.ca post wasn’t me 😉

I get “Couldn’t get public url: Unknown Error”. As said on your blog, I’ve created a symlink to my Dropbox directory (~/.bluebox). Running ‘python dropbox.py puburl ~/.bluebox/Public/file.txt’ yields the same error.
The service menu works fine in my “normal” Public directory.

Ah yes…of course 🙂
The reason for this is that Dropbox only gets public URLs for items in your Public directory since only they have a public URL. Not an error per se, rather how Dropbox works 🙂
I should probably put a note about that in the description.

I just released a second version with the fixes you suggested. Also, I added the feature to “Copy Public URL to Klipper”
Latest version is on kde-apps.org…

Great job! Can’t you use ~ to specify the path to the icon?

For some reason it doesn’t work…I’m trying to figure out a way to work around it Using the shell variable $HOME doesn’t work either…
