How to run multiple Dropbox instances on Ubuntu/Debian/Linux Mint.
Create as many Dropbox accounts as you like on Dropbox.
Install Dropbox using your respective package at: https://www.dropbox.com/install?os=lnx
You can also use the PPA:
sudo apt-get install dropbox
Add to startup applications (Menu → Preferences → Startup Applications) the following script per account:
HOME=~/.dropbox-some-alias dropbox start -i
If you have (3) Dropbox accounts, you would add one per account, changing the “some-alias” part.
After you reboot your computer, you will be prompted to log in to the respective Dropbox accounts.
Note that your Dropbox folders are accessible under
~/.dropbox-some-alias, so you could add Bookmarks or hotkeys to open them.
