Simply open Terminal with Ctrl + Alt + T and then type in

sudo apt-get install lubuntu-desktop


sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop

In Lubuntu, all you need to do is go to Application Menu > System Settings (?) > Ubuntu One. I think it is the same/very similar in Xubuntu 13.10 and earlier, in Xubuntu 14.04 (with Whisker Menu) just type in 'Ubuntu One'.

In any case, you can always access the web version of Ubuntu One.
