So I'm sure you've heard the song before, but after trying to sync my notes with Ubuntu One(on 10.10 AMD64) I get "Could not synchronize notes. Check the details below and try again." Of course the problem is that there are no details and trying again doesn't help. So I ran tomboy -debug and compared my error to any thing I could find about similar problems (such as the post here) but found nothing useful.

Any way here's my first error, I got this using preferences>synchronization>Ubuntu_one

[ERROR 21:08:42.271] Synchronization failed with the following exception: String was not recognized as a valid DateTime.

The next thing I tried was using preferences>synchronization>tomboy_web with the default 'http://one.ubuntu.com/notes/' and got the same error plus one more.

I Have also tried removing then re-adding My computer from my Ubuntu One account, but that did not help either. The only other Thing I have noticed is that under system>preferences>ubuntu one >services, "Notes" is not listed as a service. I don't know if this is normal or not. Thanks for any help and please let me know if anything is confusing.

This shouldn't be happening. Could you please file a bug? –  Chipaca Feb 11 '11 at 23:02

So for the time being My notes are syncing again. Turns out there was Bug reported on launchpad that was the same as mine. The fix was some what annoying, but all I did was back up my local notes, delete all notes from the U1 server,restart tomboy, and try syncing again. It seems that editing a note from the U1 web interface can cause the errors above.

It didn't work for me. I've removed and readded computer from account and it doesn't help too before I tried to remove my notes from Ubuntu One site. What was helpful for me - cleaning and readding sync preferences in Tomboy. Problem began on laptop with 10.10 when I've installed 11.04 Beta 1 on PC. Upgrading laptop's Ubuntu to 11.04 release didn't help. Cleaning sync preferences did. –  user15723 Apr 30 '11 at 19:53
