Running Ubuntu One on Fedora 17
Ubuntu One is a personal cloud service which enables users to store files online and sync them between computers and mobile devices, as well as stream audio and music from cloud to mobile devices. Free Ubuntu One account offers 5 GB of online cloud storage. Users may increase their storage by adding additional 20 GB “20-packs” for $2.99 per month or $29.99 per year.
Ubuntu does not provide any official application for running Ubuntu One on Fedora 17, but there is always a way. Running Ubuntu One on Fedora 17 will take some doing as fedora is not supported by Ubuntu.
To run Ubuntu One on Fedora 17 follow these steps:
Download and install the ubuntu one repo to /etc/yum.repos.d/
wget http://www.maxiberta.com.ar/repo/fedora-ubuntuone.repo mv fedora-ubuntuone.repo /etc/yum.repos.d/
Install the ubuntu one client
yum install ubuntuone-client
Start and stop ubuntu one
u1sdtool --start u1sdtool --connect
A window will appear where you can register a new user or use an existing account. The Gnome Keyring will ask you to enter you passphrase in order to securely store your UbuntuOne credentials
The UbuntuOne Sync Daemon will run automatically every time you log in. Your ~/”Ubuntu One” directory is now synchronized with your Ubuntu One cloud storage.
