After installing it at home without any problem, I'm trying to install Ubuntu One at work (Ubuntu 12.04, must use proxy). Apparently it can not connect to the server: I can't sign in of course, can't use the "forgotten password" form either (address not recognized), and if I open the dialog to create an account I get a message "There was a problem downloading the captcha, reloading...".

I tried installing ubuntuone-client-proxy: Ubuntu One behind a proxy, how to make it work?

and resinstalling the certificates:

... without any success.

What am I doing wrong?

I asked the same question in but didn't get any answer either. turns out that it's apparently impossible to use Ubuntu One with my proxy configuration (see details in the link).
