When trying to install dropbox from terminal (using How to install Dropbox? guide),
and trying to install the repository key I get the following:
~$ sudo apt-key adv --keyserver pgp.mit.edu --recv-keys 5044912E Executing: gpg --ignore-time-conflict --no-options --no-default-keyring --secret-keyring /tmp/tmp.0A2B16zRzS --trustdb-name /etc/apt/trustdb.gpg --keyring /etc/apt/trusted.gpg --primary-keyring /etc/apt/trusted.gpg --keyserver pgp.mit.edu --recv-keys 5044912E gpg: requesting key 5044912E from hkp server pgp.mit.edu gpgkeys: key 5044912E not found on keyserver gpg: no valid OpenPGP data found. gpg: Total number processed: 0
Even when I try to just install dropbox itself:
$ cd ~ && wget -O - "http://www.dropbox.com/download?plat=lnx.x86_64" | tar xzf - --2014-01-28 14:12:27-- http://www.dropbox.com/download?plat=lnx.x86_64 Resolving <proxy> (<proxy>)... xxx.xxx.xxx Connecting to <proxy> (<proxy>)|xxx.xxx.xxx|:8080... connected. Proxy request sent, awaiting response... 407 Proxy Authentication Required 2014-01-28 14:12:27 ERROR 407: Proxy Authentication Required. gzip: stdin: unexpected end of file tar: Child returned status 1 tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
however, this should not be a proxy problem as other machines seem to be able to overcome the proxy problem and the Software Center can install it (but then I cannot get the key).
