My question sounds a little like Using DesktopCouch without Ubuntu One? but I got a little further.
I've paired two computers using /usr/lib/desktopcouch/desktopcouch-pair but it doesn't look like anything is happening. While checking my logging, I see it tries to sync with ubuntu-one (the other paired host) but the new one doesn't do anything. I hoped to use this for syncing my desktopcouchdb's while u1 is broken.
Is there any step I missed to get it working?
