Ah right (multiverse)....

Run:
Code: [Select]
software-properties-gtk
on the first tab make sure "Software restricted by copyright or legal issues (multiverse)" is ticked .. enter your password if prompted, whilst in there it'd also be a good idea to select the second tab (Other Software), and make sure "Canonical Partners" is also ticked .. then "Close" the window.

back in the terminal run:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get update
then
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install nautilus-dropbox
then
Code: [Select]
dropbox start -i
