Re: Dropbox installation in 16

1. Is this so Dropbox on my computer can connect to my account on their servers automatically when I login?
How did you install dropbox in your computer?

During installation, it should ask you to select the location of Dropbox folder - and you can choose your preference. The default would be the home folder. Also, dropbox is automatically added to startup and so will start as you login in to the OS. You can see this if you type gnome-session-properties in the terminal (assuming you are using GNOME)

Thank you,

I do not think this is needed. It works fine without adding anything to the fstab file.
