Apparmor rule for nomachine’s free NX server and Hardy Heron

I had a bit of time today so I generated an Apparmor rule for NoMachine’s free NX server for linux. Its a bit ruff and ready but it does work. Might go back to tidy it up a bit when I’ve got more time on my hands. Tested on Ubuntu Hardy Heron 8.04 using the following nx versions :
-rw-r--r-- 1 billy billy 3860030 2008-07-15 13:29 nxclient_3.2.0-9_i386.deb
-rw-r--r-- 1 billy billy 6246394 2008-07-15 13:30 nxnode_3.2.0-11_i386.deb
-rw-r--r-- 1 billy billy 6701004 2008-07-15 13:30 nxserver_3.2.0-13_i386.deb

Always remember to reload apparmor when you change/add rules

sudo /etc/init.d/apparmor reload
