I just installed Ubuntu One files for Android and it uploaded all my pictures and I can see them in the web interface. Can I get this folder to automatically download all the files to my Ubuntu One folder on my Ubuntu PC?

I have been having the same problem. I am running ubuntu 10.04 so there is no control panel and therefore no option to sync the cloud "synced folder" to my pc – jay Sep 15 '11 at 20:19

Yes. Your pictures are stored in a cloud folder named "Pictures - your phone model". If you run the Ubuntu One control panel (which you can see at then your new cloud folder will be listed, and you can tick it to make sure that this cloud folder is also on your computer.

OK, I am still on 10.10 so I still have the old Control Panel without that option. I will try to install it, but following the advice here I get 'Couldn't find package ubuntuone-control-panel' when trying 'sudo apt-get install ubuntuone-control-panel' I'll see if I can get it to work. – NicklyH Jun 30 '11 at 21:04
doh, I'm on 10.04 can I still do this? – NicklyH Jul 1 '11 at 0:54

You should see a new cloud folder called something like "Pictures - Nexus One", which you can specify in the Ubuntu One control panel to sync to your computer. It doesn't sync down by default, no.
