First off, you have to put the item you want to share into the 'Public' folder in your Dropbox. You can't get a link for anything that's not under the Public folder.

Under Windows, you can then right-click items in the public folder, and under the Dropbox menu, you'll see 'Copy public link'.

Same rules apply for Ubuntu Linux systems. I don't have a Mac with Dropbox to see how it works there, but I'm assuming it's similarly easy to find.

You don't have to put the item in the Public folder, it can be shared from anywhere. Refer to the dupe. –  Sathya Aug 24 '11 at 6:26
