How to install and use DropBox plugin for Netdrive
« on: October 14, 2018, 03:14:19 am »
Anybody have any idea how to install or use the DropBox plugin for NetDrive?

I assume that to install it I use

YUM install  ndpdbox-0.6.0.b9-0.oc00.i686.rpm

This does create a folder on the desktop titled NpdDBox 0.6.b9. Inside the folder is an icon for Dropbox Authorize.

If the browser (firefox 45.9.0) is already open and I have signed on to DropBox when I click on Dropbox Authorize, click on the Start button, and then copy the text from the "Api Request Authorized" page on DropBox.com I get what looks like an error dialog box, title is DropBoxauth, message is: 
No access token in http reply!

If the browser isn't open then when I click the Start button, the browser starts and opens a sign on page for Drop Box. When I type in my email and password and click Sign In nothing happens - there is a busy cursor that never goes away.

The plugin is working here. If DropBox changed their side again, then you'll need an updated plug-in. (Actually, so will I, but my plugin is already working for now.)

I'd open an issue with bww.

This is exactly what happend to me last year. I contacted bww but in the end I gave up after some weeks and several attempts. Allways the same like yours. Would be interested in a solution as well!

Hi Doug,

I have the plugin installed. In my case the plugin is working most of the time. Sometimes I get acces denied !
As Neil suggested raise a request for help at bww.
