Ubuntu One help Ubuntu One helpFAQsWhy do I get a 'NoneType' object has not attribute 'makefile' when setting up my computer with Ubuntu One? This error will normally occur when you are behind a proxy server and try to setup Ubuntu One. You'll likely see the error after completing step 3 of the setup process. Ubuntu One does not currently work behind a proxy server.
