Re: dropbox under archlinux: how to know what is my disk usage ?

Sorry, I didnt express myself very clearly. I am not talking about the disk usage on my disk, but the disk usage on my dropbox space (online). On ubuntu, when you install the nautilus package, you get a menu on th etop of your screen where you get many options like dropbox preferences etc. and One particularly interesting info that you find in this menu is the percentage of the space used on your dropbox account and if all the files are updated or not ...


my question is : Does it exist similar menu on arch linux ?


thanks a lot,

Julien

There is an AUR package for Dropbox extensions to Nautilus:

https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/nautilus-dropbox

Here is the github page for the underlying project, which is run by Dropbox itself:

https://github.com/dropbox/nautilus-dropbox

Thanks a lot for your response Snakeroot, I did install this package, but I don't have the menu, so my question is: can we find this menu somewhere ? in another package maybe ?

Not sure about a menu, but you can click on the dropbox icon in your panel, select Launch Dropbox Website. There, if you click on your profile icon it tells you how much of your dropbox space you are using.
Hope this helps.
