[manjaro] install Dropbox

You want to install Dropbox on Manjaro.

Visit the official download page and follow the instructions under the section “Install Dropbox via command line”. Everything is explained there.

Later, Dropbox may complain that it cannot monitor the filesystem correctly. It happens when you have lots and lots of files in your Dropbox folder. Here is the fix:

# open this file for edit:
$ sudo vim /etc/sysctl.d/99-sysctl.conf
# and add this line:
fs.inotify.max_user_watches = 100000
# then reload the kernel parameters:
sudo sysctl --system

Notice that this file’s location differs from Ubuntu’s.

This tip is from here.
