I installed Ubuntu one both on my desktop (64bit) and my laptop (32bit). On the laptop, when I go to the "Services" tab I cannot select anything except Files.

Is there anyway to solve it?

Or there is any way to manually synchronize bookmarks?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Do you mean click instead of "thick"? – Jorge Castro Apr 2 '11 at 16:03
@JorgeCastro: I picked up what they were trying to say (language barrier, I'm accustomed to that mistake ;)). – RolandiXor Apr 2 '11 at 16:16
I meant "tick", my bad. Anyway, thanks for the revision :) – Railslide Apr 5 '11 at 16:27
I am also having difficulty with sync. I have been using Ubuntu 11.4 on my desktop PC for a few days and every looks normal there but having just installed 11.4 on my laptop when I open Tomboy Notes and click on Tools the sync option is grayed out. I can log into Ubuntuone and see my files but there is nothing coming up for Tomboy Notes and there is no prompt to install any additional software. Also there are no text menu options across the top like Edit/Preferences? I have tried installing the following packages using Synaptic Conduit Ubuntuone-couch ubuntuone-file-storage-api Does not seem t – Peter May 5 '11 at 17:28

You can also use Ubuntu One to synchronise contacts, bookmarks and Tomboy notes. If you don't have the required packages installed, the Ubuntu One control panel should prompt you to install them.

Also note that the bookmark synchronisation only really works reliably in Natty at the moment. We are working on making this new synchronisation code available in prior releases.

The problem is that I cannot select Tomboy notes nor contacts neither. I checked, same packages installed on both the machines. For bookmars I'll wait for Natty then :) – Railslide Apr 5 '11 at 16:40

Found the answer to my problem .. There are no menus in the applet window (as with previous versions I think) however when you start Tomboy an icon appears on the top bar (along with Network Time and User etc) which I had not noticed before. When I right click on that icon all the menu options appear including 'Preferences' and 'Synchronize Notes'.. when I opened Preferences and the Synchronization Tab and selected Ubuntuone in the services field it automatically detected settings and worked fine..
