Hi @morga,

You can get out of the "morga" :grinning: using following:

sudo apt-get install libxxf86vm1

Hope this helps. :wink:

What you mean "not installed"?? :thinking: You don't have to install it when you have installed the Dropbox package or just extract the archive (without any install action) if you want run it by hand! What actually you are doing?
