I love file-sharing platforms like Ubuntu One. Up to now I used Dropbox and there you can see the progress of uploading (with moving the mouse-cursor over the Dropbox icon on the lower right edge).

In Ubuntu One I don't see a way to control the progress of uploading. I really miss that function, because it seems to synchronise quite slow (a 22 MB file is syncing for several minutes now).

Is there a way to control the progress?

  • Are you looking for a progress bar or for an indicator that shows what Ubuntu One is doing? – Exeleration-G Jan 2 '12 at 12:22
  • Both would be helpful. I don't see a progress bar at my screen and i didn't know what U1 was doing until i installed the packed decribed by giowck (see below). – LukeST Jan 2 '12 at 17:24

There is an ubuntu one indicator, but I never tested it: http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2011/01/the-omg-guide-to-must-have-indicator-applets/

    Thank you, that's great help. Now i have a little cloud at the top bar and it shows me most of the wanted information. – LukeST Jan 2 '12 at 17:18
  • @Roland Taylor, yes you're right, next time I will include a full answer. – c0de Jan 2 '12 at 20:36
  • @giowck: btw I use this indicator too on both my laptops :D – RolandiXor Jan 3 '12 at 0:07

In the Ubuntu One settings application there is an option to allow setting the maximum upload and download bandwidth used. Look under the "Devices" tab in the Ubuntu One application.

  • Thank you for that hint. But i have that box checked and no progress bar is visible. Now i have and indicator at the top (see that hint below), that's helping me a lot. – LukeST Jan 2 '12 at 17:18

Ubuntu One client shows a progress bar and when it's running, you can see a progressbar on the clients launcher as well.

  • A progress bar would help me a lot. But i don't see one. Am i blind or do i do something wrong??? Please look to this screenshot: ubuntuone.com/6RXlpZgiCnebxEpFK9nh77 Where is a progress bar that shows me what part of the file "9. 11. 1918 ..." i actually been loaded up? – LukeST Jan 2 '12 at 16:30
  • Perhaps I remembered wrong. Seing the screenshot from fader, it may have been that progressbar I thought about. Sorry. But if you run the client and look at the Launcher on the left side of the screen, does it have a progressbar? – Jo-Erlend Schinstad Jan 2 '12 at 21:06
  • No, i never have seen any progressbar with U1. Should there be any or was it in older versions? – LukeST Jan 4 '12 at 23:10
