When I click on Ubuntu One in the launcher and try to log in I get:

method "createitem" with signature "a{sv}(oyay)b" on interface "org.freedeskto.secret.collection" doesn't exist

I don't have a clue what this means or how to fix it. Can any one offer any help?

I have a clean install of 11.10 on a 20GB partition of a 40GB hard drive. The other 20GB is for Windows XP Professional.

Have you joined up on the website or are you trying to do it from within the desktop application? The Ubuntu One website has a very good help page here that you should have a read through - it's FAQ section lists most common problems and solutions. – Mark Rooney Nov 13 '11 at 7:48

Sorry, it looks like the bug you're seeing is still being worked on. But it's very close. – webm0nk3y Nov 16 '11 at 5:57
