I've just installed ubuntu 12.04 and added lxde as well as Nautilus. The downloading of my stored files has just started, but I'm unable to sync new folders via right-clicking. How can I solve the problem? I'd like to avoid GNOME.

I got the same problem. And in my case I had already synchronized a folder inside the folder I was trying to sync. This was overlapping, I just stopped the sync in the inside folder and then synchronize new folder in the upper level. Hope this helps

You can either install ubuntuone-client-gnome which provides the Nautilus extension, or just use the control panel to sync new folders.

Thank you for the quick response. ubuntone-client-gnome is already installed, yet just doesn't work... – schlossblick Jun 25 '12 at 15:14
Nothing comes to mind really. I suggest you file a support request at – Roberto Alsina Jun 26 '12 at 2:20
If you installed the package after Nautilus was already running, then nautilus will have to be restarted for the plug-in to load. Also, the folders must be underneath your home directory, and not be underneath a folder already being synchronized on U1. – dobey Jun 26 '12 at 13:30
