I have a Google chrome computer, which I'd like to install Dropbox on. Dropbox provides instructions for installing on Linux here https://www.dropbox.com/install?os=lnx, however, I need to figure out how to enter Linux commands on Chromium. This webpage http://www.chromium.org/chromium-os/poking-around-your-chrome-os-device suggests two ways to do it. First, you can get a command prompt through VT-2 by doing this, with the arrow being the right arrow key above the three on the keyboard.
When I try this, I get no response (even when I'm in developer mode).
The other way to get the command prompt is through crosh, like this
This opens the crosh shell for me, but none of the commands for installing dropbox work for me. For example, I get the error 'cd'` is not a command when I try to run the first line (shown below) for installing dropbox. It also doesn't accept 'shell' command or 'sudo'
For installing dropbox on linux.
32-bit: cd ~ && wget -O - "https://www.dropbox.com/download?plat=lnx.x86" | tar xzf - 64-bit: cd ~ && wget -O - "https://www.dropbox.com/download?plat=lnx.x86_64" | tar xzf - Next, run the Dropbox daemon from the newly created .dropbox-dist folder. ~/.dropbox-dist/dropboxd
