Installing Dropbox on Ubuntu Server 10.04

Just installed on my PC running Ubuntu Server 10.04, a little hard to find source to add to repository. But here it is, all you need to do is just follow these steps:

1. Make sure you have installed Nautilus
$ sudo apt-get install nautilus
2. Install public key to authenticate Dropbox's Ubuntu repository
$ sudo apt-key adv --keyserver --recv-keys 5044912E
3. Add source to repository
$ sudo vim /etc/apt/sources.list
deb lucid main
4. Update repositories
$ sudo apt-get update
5. Install Dropbox integration for Nautilus
$ sudo apt-get install nautilus-dropbox
6. Starting Dropbox daemon
$ dropbox start -i

You have to restart all intances of Nautilus, then start Dropbox and fill in your account information. That's it! :)
