If I'm not mistaken, the ubuntuone sync service is supposed to start automatically during the boot/login process. But I'm finding that it doesn't on either of my 10.10 computers (one an AMD64 desktop and the other an i386 laptop). I'm using the ubuntuone-indicator, but the problem began before I installed it. In my list of startup applications I find one titled "Ubuntu One" with this command line

/bin/sh -c '[ -d "$HOME/Ubuntu One" ] && ubuntuone-launch'

But the only way for me to start the service is to open the Ubuntu One setup UI and click "connect" every time I start up the computer. Any suggestions as to what might be going wrong?

Here is the message output when I run u1sdtool --status after startup (i.e., before starting the Ubuntu One service manually):

Oops, an error ocurred: Traceback (most recent call last): Failure: dbus.exceptions.DBusException: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.Spawn.ChildExited: Process /usr/lib/ubuntuone-client/ubuntuone-syncdaemon exited with status 1

Could the problem be related to the fact that I'm using connman and the experimental indicator-network package to connect to the internet?

Could you post the output of u1sdtool --status before you start it up manually? –  Alvin Row Oct 25 '10 at 22:32
    
The output of that command is the following: Oops, an error ocurred: Traceback (most recent call last): Failure: dbus.exceptions.DBusException: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.Spawn.ChildExited: Process /usr/lib/ubuntuone-client/ubuntuone-syncdaemon exited with status 1 –  monotasker Oct 26 '10 at 14:11
    
What version of python-ubuntuone-client do you have installed? –  Chipaca Nov 2 '10 at 23:40
    
It's version 1.4.4.1 –  monotasker Nov 4 '10 at 0:32

It does not start automatically on boot because it needs to know for witch user to connect, in case there are more users set for computer login.

There is a Startup section in the System drop down menu, where you can add it to start automatically at login.

I'm a bit confused by this answer. As I said in my question, there is a command in my "startup programs" section to start ubuntu one at login. But it's clearly not working and I don't know why. The fact that this is happening on both my computers is especially odd, since both computers have the star script included in the startup commands. –  monotasker Oct 26 '10 at 20:17
    
It needs the keyring, witch asks for a password later, after startup. No keyring acces, no Ubuntuone. –  iugamarian Oct 28 '10 at 23:40

You should probably file a bug: https://bugs.edge.launchpad.net/ubuntuone-client. You should also attach your .cache/ubuntuone/syncdaemon.log to the bug report.

There is a start up bug that has affected quite a few people bug #683116. The fix is in the pipeline and we should see it soon.
