You can install Ubuntu One Indicator by opening the Terminal (Applications>Accessories> Terminal) and enter the following lines:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:rye/ubuntuone-extras

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install ubuntuone-indicator

Credit for the image: OMG! Ubuntu!

Currently the PPA is available for Lucid and Maverick users only.

Yeah. Try that, the OMG! article doesn't give better install instructions, so you need to test and report. – papukaija Jan 19 '11 at 0:22
Actually it's a bug: – papukaija Jan 23 '11 at 17:20
