Just follow Dropbox's instruction here: https://www.dropbox.com/install?os=lnx

A quick command for 64-bit Linux:

$ cd ~ && wget -O - "https://www.dropbox.com/download?plat=lnx.x86_64" | tar xzf -

Use the dropx CLI: http://www.dropboxwiki.com/Using_Dropbox_CLI

Download dropbox.py:

$ wget -O ~/bin/dropbox.py "https://www.dropbox.com/download?dl=packages/dropbox.py"

Set the permissions:

$ chmod +x ~/bin/dropbox.py

Start Dropbox:

$ dropbox.py start

Status:

$ dropbox.py status
