does it work as a link to the folder as well, or is it just showing how much space is used?

It doesn't link (yet)... Good idea, though. I'll have a go at coding that up!

i'll check on the progress if you get the link thing, since i would be interested in using it (no knowledge of programming yet, so i can't help other than testing)

Hi chriskin, I can't reproduce the error (I'm on Intrepid, using dropbox 0.6.1 - the version in the repository).

However, can I ask you to open up DropboxScreenet.py and comment or delete line 264 (reads: 'sdevs.pop()' ) and see what happens when you run it from a terminal?

Sadly for my on Karmic this screenlet doens't display as in the screenshot :(

The 3rd line partially overlaps onto the bottom bar which just looks... rubbish. Shame as it's SUCH a great screenlet!

Thanks d0od. My guess is that (your version of?) Karmic is rendering the font differently to my Intrepid.

I'm planning on adding support for altering the font/size, so bear with me!

Wahey! It looks fine in the 0.3 release... although a small bug is if you select a font that is more than word word long the text dissapears.

if it isn't too rude to ask for another feature, it would be Perfect for the user to have the option to change where the text would appear
some fonts make the text appear on the bar instead of above it

Glad it's working for you now.

It's never rude to ask! I feel that this sort of functionality might be better suited by different themes, rather than more options. At the moment, I've just started to look at how the themes work, and I shall see if I can make it a bit more theme-friendly for this sort of thing.

So to answer your question: possibly... ;-)

If you can't wait (and feel like poking around in the source code), the relevant bits are near the bottom, and it isn't too complicated. If you do come up with some settings you think look awesome, give me a shout and I can include another theme using them.

by the way, i am experiencing a strange problem : i always get the refreshing icon(never the green tick that shows that everything is updated)
i also never get text above the usage lines (like "Idle" i saw at a screenshot or "not connected")

Is any text displaying? If not, have you tried altering the font?

What is the output of 'dropbox status' in a terminal?

christos@CNB:~$ dropbox status
dropbox: command not found
christos@CNB:~$

i'm running on karmic, there is no installable dropbox yet (as far as i know), so i have just added dropbox to the start-up applications.
probably that's the reason why i get my issues with the screenlet

Sounds likely! A quick google for "dropbox karmic" gives several useful results on how to install.

none would work for my release of dropbox
downgrading that much is not worth the trouble in order to get the text and the icons, i use the screenlet mostly in order to know how much of my space i use and to click it to get to the folder fast :)

i installed dropbox and it seems that it accepts my development version as backend , yet the screenlet works finely now
it is way better now - in case someone else uses the development version like me

 Small bug

Great app. However, there is one small bug: it assumes that you only have 2GB of storage (since I invited some people, I have 3.25GB).

Other than that, awesome program.

Hi andrewmin, cheers! You can set the amount of storage you have under Options/Dropbox in the Properties dialogue.
