Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.

Marlin, the new file browser developed by ammonkey (who's also behind Nautilus elementary) for elementary OS, got two new plugins for Dropbox and Ubuntu One.

This means you can now get a public link or easily access previous revisions in Dropbox or publish/share and synchronize external folders in Ubuntu One using Marlin, just like you can using Nautilus:

Marlin Dropbox plugin

Marlin file browser Ubuntu One

Install Marlin and Dropbox / Ubuntu One Plugins

The new plugins, along with Marlin and other experimental packages are available in a new Marlin daily PPA.

Important: this PPA provides unstable packages and should only be used for testing.

If you want to test Marlin as well as the new Ubuntu One / Dropbox plugins in Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric Ocelot, use the commands below:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:marlin-devs/marlin-daily
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install marlin marlin-plugin-dropbox marlin-plugin-ubuntuone

Or you can use Glimpse to try it out.

Once installed, you need to enable the new plugins under Settings > Plugins:

Marlin elementary

And finally, restart Marlin.

If you're not using Ubuntu 11.10, you can get the latest Marlin as well as the new plugins via BZR.
