Using Ubuntu 11.04

I started Ubuntu One today, and put 14 files in the sync folder.
The total size of the 14 files is 295 MB.

After 11 hours, and since about 5 hours ago, the command

  u1sdtool --current

shows the same thing

Current uploads:
  path: /home/ubuntuone/20110524/home-dev-all-20110524.tar.gz
    deflated size: 45355790
    bytes written: 45355790
  path: /home/ubuntuone/20110524/home-misc-20110524.tar.gz
    deflated size: 68366485
    bytes written: 68366485
  path: /home/ubuntuone/20110524/home-windoze-20110524.tar.gz
    deflated size: 42369328
    bytes written: 42369328
  path: /home/ubuntuone/20110524/home-Documents-20110524.tar.gz
    deflated size: 86213754
    bytes written: 86213754
Current downloads: 0

and the state also is the same:

$ u1sdtool -s
    connection: With User With Network
    description: processing the commands pool
    is_connected: True
    is_error: False
    is_online: True
    queues: WORKING

The U1 page tells me that my files are 62 MB (~5%).

Is it supposed to be that long?
Is there a problem?

I'm having the same problem, been trying for several days with no progress on my sync! – Rob May 24 '11 at 21:30
Never mind. Installed dropbox using the installer for Ubuntu. Install took 1 mn. Total sync took 20 mn. – ringø May 25 '11 at 6:10

As a complete numpty I clicked all the green ubuntu one blocks for reinstallation in synaptic manager - all seems to work now!

maybe this page is worth a look: today i had the same problem and there was the explanation: "2011-10-28 Windows and Ubuntu 11.10 users may experience issues with not all files syncing due to a bug we're currently working on fixing."
