UbuntuOne is not working -- connection issues -- and I've been having trouble with using Funambol and SyncEvolution as a substitute, so I'd like to try to get Ubuntu One working for me.

I tried reinstalling it with Synaptic, I walked through the troubleshooting steps on UbuntuOne. When I open UbuntuOne from the "me" menu, it does appear to connect to my account -- it reports my usage and shows my current plan and devices, but it also says "disconnected"

I tried the fix at: Unable to connect to Ubuntu One

u1sdtool -s just sits there -- nothing happens and I don't get a new command prompt.

u1sdtool -q does report ubuntuone-syncdaemon stopped.

I removed my computer from the list, removed .cache/ubuntuone .config/ubuntuone and ~/Ubuntu One and tried to connect again. Now I'm getting a status response at least:

[0 amanda@luna ~]$ u1sdtool -s
State: READY
    connection: Not User Not Network
    description: ready to connect
    is_connected: False
    is_error: False
    is_online: False
    queues: IDLE

So I tried again -- did u1sdtool -q and this time there was also a .local/share/ubuntuone directory to remove, along with Ubuntu One and the ubuntuone directories in .cache and .config. I also did ps aux | grep ubuntu and killed two running processes:

amanda    3062  0.1  0.7  45372 23460 ?        SL   07:54   0:19 /usr/bin/python /usr/lib/ubuntuone-client/ubuntuone-login
amanda    7373 13.6  6.1 402320 189516 ?       Sl   10:27   1:48 /usr/lib/firefox-3.6.17/firefox-bin

Then I u1sdtool --start followed by u1sdtool -c and Firefox did open the "connect this computer" dialog, which seems to have worked. So I seem to be connected. But man, oh man was that a pill.

Any idea how I should have gone about this to begin with?

Of course, I'm on 10.04 so this was all pretty much for naught since all I really want to sync is my contacts. Argh.… – Amanda May 31 '11 at 15:32
