Compile and install kfilebox 0.4.10 on Debian Jessie

If you using Dropbox client and you would like full system tray integration unfortunately you can not install a package that will work without issues with latest versions of dropbox client.

Solution is to download, compile and install kfilebox from source, but since kfilebox is unmaintained for long time I found this fixed version on github page: https://github.com/gtgt/kfilebox.

To compile successfully you will need few perquisites installed:

apt-get install build-essential libqjson-dev git

Then you need to clone the repository and compile and install:

git clone https://github.com/gtgt/kfilebox
cd kfilebox
qmake
make
make install

If all went well when you start kfilebox you will see this nice integrated icon in your system tray.
