When I right-click on a file and go to UbuntuOne, I am unable to select any option except "Hide Ribbon" and most of the time there is no ribbon to hide. So is moving files to the UbuntuOne folder the only option?

Dumb mistake on my part, I didn't mention that the folder is outside the Home folder and U1 doesn't have the functionality to do that just yet according to the U1 FAQ

I think UbuntuOne is working on directory basis, so you can put to cloud any directory (for example, ~/.config)

Tried right-clicking the directory to try syncing it with U1, but I am not able to do it. I've put in a screenshot in the question to explain my situation better. – Nitin Venkatesh Jun 8 '11 at 2:53
Hmm.. Sorry I'm not in Ubuntu just now, but if you have no "sync" command in context menu.. maybe, try Dropbox? It can do it – Extender Jun 8 '11 at 2:57
It's not an emergency, but just curious to know why it ain't happening and if I can get it to work. – Nitin Venkatesh Jun 8 '11 at 3:01
