    First Dropbox, then UbuntuOne, can't a KDE user get any luv'n?

    It looks like somebody's gotten fed up enough to do something about it.
    You can get the .deb or .rpm from the KDropbox website (http://kdropbox.deuteros.es/). According to their website some of Kdropbox 0.1.0 features:
    • Dropbox status
    • Open Dropbox folder
    • Preferences editor
    • Open help URLs
    • English, Polish (by Mateusz Piekos) and Spanish translations[/list:u]

      For those that don't know, Dropbox is a cloud-based files storage system which mounts to one of your local directories. When mounted, your local directory will sync with the online location so any changes and additions in either location will be found in the other location.

      Your online Dropbox account is also accessible through a browser, in case you wanted to upload or download something from/to your work computer or a friend's.

      Also, a directory can be set to share and all a person needs is the link to it. This keeps things a little bit safer because it's a separate directory in your Dropbox account and doesn't expose the rest of your account's contents.

      Of course you'll need to get a Dropbox account. Dont' worry, they give you 2 GB for free and they offer larger sizes for a price (50GB for $10, 100GB for $20).
