Install Ubuntu One

[Option 1] Install Ubuntu One from the command line:

  1. Open Konsole and enter the following command:

    sudo apt-get install ubuntuone-control-panel-qt
    
  2. Enter your password at the password prompt if requested. It should look like this:

    [sudo] password for user: where user is your login name. It does not show any echo characters when you type your password.

  3. It may prompt you with a question like this: Do you want to continue [Y/n]? The capitalized option in brackets is the default choice, so you can just hit enter, type y and enter, or n if you changed your mind.

[Option 2] Install Ubuntu one using Muon Software Center

  1. Open Muon Software Center from your application launcher.

  2. Type ubuntuone-control-panel-qt in the search box in the upper right corner.

  3. Click on Ubuntu One. Two buttons should appear; click on the one that says Install.

Make Ubuntu One start when KDE starts

  1. Open your KDE autostart folder in Dolphin. It should be ~/.kde/Autostart (which is short for /home/user/.kde/Autostart) unless you moved it.

  2. Open Kate and past the following into a blank document:

    [Desktop Entry]
    Version=1.0
    Type=Application
    Name=Ubuntu One Control Panel
    GenericName=File Synchronizer
    Comment=Sync your files across computers and to the web
    Exec=ubuntuone-control-panel-qt --minimized
    Icon=ubuntuone
    Categories=Network;FileTransfer;
    StartupNotify=false
    OnlyShowIn=KDE;
    

    See the man page and a command explanation

    Running ubuntuone-control-panel-qt --with-icon will start the Ubuntu One in the system tray, but it will also open a window. Instead, run ubuntuone-control-panel-qt --minimized at KDE start to start the system tray.*

  3. Click File > Save as... and browse to your autostart folder. In the Name: box enter ubuntuone.desktop. See more about Desktop File Specification and the file name

    The file name should end with .desktop and should not have spaces.

  4. Go to Dolphin that you opened earlier and right-click on the file you just created and select Properties.

  5. Under "Properties for ubuntuone.desktop — Dolphin" click on the Permissions tab.

  6. Under "Access Permissions" look for "Is executable" and click on the check box if it is empty and click Okay.

After the installation the QT Ubuntu One client, you have to make a startup item for Ubuntu One\ when your system starts adding the following command:

ubuntuone-control-panel-qt --with-icon

You can do this clicking at the kickstart icon (down left at your monitor), and type start for searching where the application is, to configure the startup apps of your system.
