As I’m moving my setup to Nixos, I’m trying to make Dropbox work like on my other computers.
Basically, I’d need Dropbox to start at launch, and integrate with my file manager (which, in my case is Gnome Files, aka Nautilus). There is no Dropbox module that I could find. So the only thing I’ve done so far is adding
dropbox to my
This, to be honest, doesn’t work terribly well (I can start dropbox from, say, the command line, but since it doesn’t integrate to my desktop or file manager, I have no way of checking the synchronisation status, and I’m not quite sure this is working properly).
That’s about the state of my knowledge and understanding at this point.
So I’d like to know if the Nixos community has found best practices or neat tricks to make Dropbox pleasant to use on Nixos. I use Gnome, but I’m interested in answers for other setups as well.
