I have installed Unison to sync data between my two PCs but I am getting an error about a non existing file. Here it is alt text there is no such file in the .unison folder called lkb60...... which is being complained.

It might be a weird bug, have you asked the devs at all? – Martin Owens -doctormo- Dec 2 '10 at 12:21

I finally got it working!!!

Apparently, problem was that, Unison was not able to create a profile using the Unison-gtk (still don't know why it was showing error about a non-existing file) so due to this there was some problem loading the profile.

What I did now, I went into the .unison and created the profile by creating a profile.prf file consisting the info as follows-

root = /home/gaurav/
root = ssh://gaurav@

Here is a complete How-To on the issue.

if you're sure that the file really dosen't exist (re-check the whole path) you may try deleting the .unison folder and remaking the settings you have right now...

already tried that, didn't help. – Gaurav Butola Dec 2 '10 at 13:01
what happens when you delete that folder and restart? – Quamis Dec 2 '10 at 13:06
