I am running the Ubuntu One Files (latest version) on my Droid X with android 2.3. During the install, I chose the upload all pictures option which did not upload any of my files. I have the auto-upload and immediately boxes checkedPhto in settings. When I take a photo, it does not auto-upload still. I can manually add photos (one at a time) through OI Files to Ubuntu One Files and it syncs to the cloud; however not to my desktop Pictures-DROIDX folder running Ubuntu 11.04 - all other folders work on the desktop except for "Pictures" which is another issue.

I can find no way to configure Ubuntu One Files to ensure it is monitoring my dcim/Camera folder on my SD card which is where my camera stores pictures taken from the phone.

Any ideas or help would be great.

Most probably Droid X has a lowercase /mnt/sdcard/dcim (instead of standard "DCIM") folder name. If that's the case, it was the issue stopping the pictures from auto-uploading. (If that's not the case, please let me know :) .)

Please follow this bug report:

The fix has been committed, we should be releasing Ubuntu One Files 1.0.4 shortly :)
