comment Dropbox won't start anymore
This worked for me apart from apt-key adv --keyserver pgp.mit.edu --recv-keys 5044912E That command just hung. Doing the purge, update and install of Dropbox seemed sufficient.

comment NX Windows 7 client to Ubuntu 12.04 server keyboard mapping
@UriHerrera Looking around Google yesterday, quite a few people suggested doing that but I don't seem to have that option. They mention that you can change the keyboard mapping on the advanced tab of the client. On my advanced tab I have network and system settings but nothing that seems to relate to a keyboard setting. My client version is NX Client for Windows Version 3.5.0.9. I've also looked in the keyboards config file for NX client as per other instructions, changing the UK entry from gb to en_GB but that had no effect. I've changed that back now.
