Open a terminal CTRL+ALT+T and type: killall ubuntuone-login ubuntuone-preferences ubuntuone-syncdaemon sudo rm -rf ~/.local/share/ubuntuone rm -rf ~/.cache/ubuntuone rm -rf ~/.config/ubuntuone mv ~/Ubuntu\ One/ ~/UbuntuOne_old/`` (source: Ubuntu One) - Support pages no longer exist. And then just to make sure. sudo apt-get remove --purge ...

This was a commercial decision made early on in the project. There where many rationales behind it, one of the predominant ones being that by making the server open source, anyone could set up a competing site with lower prices, effectively making the project hard (impossible?) to be sustained. That said, many bits and pieces have been open sourced, and ...

In Ubuntu, the process in charge of keeping a user's file synced with the user's cloud storage on Ubuntu One is called the "Ubuntu One SyncDaemon". It lives in /usr/lib/ubuntuone-client/ubuntuone-syncdaemon, and is included in a default Ubuntu Desktop installation. In this default install a lightweight check is made as to whether you are signed up to Ubuntu ...

The following is a list of the cloud services similar to Ubuntu One that work in Ubuntu (Can be installed with a .DEB file) and may provide support for the Unity Systray: Dropbox Website - https://www.dropbox.com/ Starting Free Space - 2 GB Bonus Space - 25 GB to 50 GB when used on an Smartphone Characteristics - Sync Files/Folders between devices.

Yes it is possible. The best way to archive this with a per file encryption is with encfs: The general principle is that you have a (optionally hidden) encrypted folder inside UbuntuOne/Dropbox where your files are stored, but you access them though another folder, where the decrypted files are shown. Any File you add to the decrypted folder will be ...

Ubuntu One has several advantages over Dropbox and other services. Synchronisation Like other services, Ubuntu One allows synchronisation of files across machines and does this by synchronising any file you put in the ~/Ubuntu One folder. In addition, it allows you to synchronise all of the files in any folder in your home folder. However, it lacks the ...

Just for the record, you can run Ubuntu One anywhere you want, but we don't have the resources to test it and get it running smoothly everywhere. Having said that, Ubuntu One is made up of several parts; the most problematic to get running in Debian is the syncdaemon, and I presume that is what you mean; tomboy, desktopcouch and funambol plugins shouldn't ...

You can do it by CLI or install a indicator: CLI To check the status of ubuntuone (connected, etc) do: u1sdtool -s It will print something like: State: QUEUE_MANAGER connection: With User With Network description: processing queues is_connected: True is_error: False is_online: True queues: IDLE To check the current transfers ...

You can uninstall the packages, yes. Ubuntu One involves two bits running on your computer: the Ubuntu One file sync client or syncdaemon, and desktopcouch backed by a CouchDB that replicates with the Ubuntu One CouchDB. If yo want to completely remove both, a quick way of doing that would be sudo apt-get --purge remove .*ubuntuone.* .*couch.* If all you ...

The paid Ubuntu One service helps subsidize Canonical, which means that (theoretically) signing up with U1 helps improve the platform.

Ubuntu One uses Amazon's S3 service in datacenters around the world. There are no UK datacenters listed on S3's website, though this could change. To answer your question directly, S3 Datacenters (holding your Ubuntu One data) are in the following countries: USA, Ireland, Singapore, Japan, and Brazil. None of those countries are part of the UK. If you ...

We've just released ogg support on devices that support it (Android, Ubuntu). There are 2 things that held back ogg support in our first release: iPhone does not support ogg (we would need to build per-os music libraries, which added a lot of complexity and time) Battery life for ogg was pretty bad, as it wasn't using hardware to decode the stream. we ...

It's not going to change, at least in the foreseeable future (and on this I can foresee a couple of years into the future). Allowing users to select arbitrary folders outside of their home for syncing with Ubuntu One, which could potentially sync between multiple different computers, opens a large number of usability problems to cover a use case that, quite ...

You can disable the notifications from the Ubuntu One control panel. Depending on your version, that is either in the Devices tab or the Settings tab. If using the old, GTK-based control panel, it's in the Devices tab: If you’re using the new, QT-based control panel, then it’s in the Settings tab:

As of the version 3 of the Ubuntu One client (currently in 12.04, soon to be released for Windows and backported to older Ubuntu versions), connecting through a proxy should work in most situations. In Ubuntu you need to ensure ubuntuone-client-proxy is installed (it isn’t installed by default), and proxy settings should be picked up automatically.

In xubuntu 12.04 you can install ubuntuone-client and ubuntuone-control-panel-qt. Starting ubuntuone-control-panel-qt will then kick off the login and set up your synced folders and everything. Still no thunar integration, but the control panel has enough features that it makes using u1sdtool unnecessary. For older versions, the previous answer below is ...

Symlinks won't be followed in Ubuntu One for Windows. The way it will work is the same way as the existing Ubuntu One for Ubuntu: you'll be able to mark any folder as synchronised with Ubuntu One. We're working on that right now. :-)

Regarding the communication with the cloud, yes, SSL is used, it's described at https://one.ubuntu.com/privacy/ . About storage encryption, it is not specified on the privacy statement, I remember reading somewhere that it is not encrypted. Anyway you should be able use encfs or other file based encryption mechanism. Update: I have found the following ...

Ubuntu One is spread over many packages. You can remove them by running the following command in a terminal: sudo apt-get purge ubuntuone* python-ubuntuone-storage*

This has been on our radar for a while now, yes. We are going to approach releasing this incrementally (ie, probably expose un-deleting files first). I don't have a release date for versioning, but it's something we're building towards. As soon as we set a date, we'll announce.

The common way to store something persistently and have it synchronise with Ubuntu One is to just use desktopcouch. Here's an example: from desktopcouch.records.server import CouchDatabase from desktopcouch.records.record import Record database = CouchDatabase("askubuntu_test", create=True) record = Record( {"site": "askubuntu.com", "awesome": True}, ...

See Ubuntu One : Help : FAQs - How do I move my existing music to Ubuntu One? for details. Basically, just right-click on your Music folder (or wherever your music is stored) and pick Ubuntu One > Synchronize this folder from the context menu. ...

You'd need ubuntuone-client and ubuntu-sso-client (single sign on) and all their various dependencies. It's mostly python so there shouldn't be any binary compatibility issues from just dragging the packages over. But you can start tracking down the dependencies here: http://packages.ubuntu.com/maverick/ubuntuone-client Q. Why not give instructions to add ...
