After another user asked this question: Dropbox on linux server - how to include/exclude folders?
My icon is still not working after performing some of the steps listed in other questions and answers:
Edit: In case anyone was wondering while reading this post, I was able to get my icon to show up finally by following these links:
The question should still be valid for anyone that wants to do this from the command line.
There was an answer for excluding, but not one for including. Is there any way to achieve this?
I see the former command listed in the
dropbox command's help text, but not anything that could help me with including.
Does anybody know how to achieve this?
Here is the current help text that I see:
Dropbox command-line interface commands: Note: use dropbox help <command> to view usage for a specific command. status get current status of the dropboxd help provide help puburl get public url of a file in your dropbox stop stop dropboxd running return whether dropbox is running start start dropboxd filestatus get current sync status of one or more files ls list directory contents with current sync status autostart automatically start dropbox at login exclude ignores/excludes a directory from syncing lansync enables or disables LAN sync
I also found some official Dropbox help documentation that also strangely only mentions excluding files, without including others from the Dropbox folder that are not currently synced.
