Accidentally, removed the entry from "ubuntu one" entry from the startup applications, means I wont automatically get synced on startup.

Please help.

Goto your system > preferences > startup applications Now look for the entry saying 'Ubuntu One'. click edit from the right pane, you'll see the command there. Kindly tell me that command.


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

  • it shows error when i run it from terminal so i doubt it – Gaurav Butola Oct 14 '10 at 17:00
  • @Gaurav Butola: Really? What is the error message? – Isaiah Oct 14 '10 at 17:07
  • sorry, my bad. i didn't copy it properly. – Gaurav Butola Oct 14 '10 at 17:12

The starting up disconnected is a known bug, which is fixed in maverick-proposed already. Until you get that fix you can ask it to connect "manually" via the preferences app, or by entering u1sdtool --connect from a terminal.


The first answer is the correct command, if you re-add the start up entry as:

Name: Ubuntu One

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

Save it and log out and in again, Ubuntu one will be functioning again.
