    Exclamation Can not access desktop, Ubuntuone is holding things up.

    Since this morning I can not access the desktop after I login. It is just an empty desktop, no GUI, just the background wallpaper. I used to get a notification in the top right right corner that Ubuntuone is updating but I removed the client, and the problem persists. It is not frozen, just seems to want to update files but it is taking forever. I had selected for Ubuntuone to start automatically, I think this is the problem.

    I already did, sudo apt-get remove --purge ubuntuone-client

    What other packages do I have to remove to get rid of this completely?

    What is the daemon name? I picked up on ubuntuone-syncdaemon via another thread but there is no package by that name.

    I am going to reformat my machines after I backup data. Not much on them anyway.

    Why not just start in recovery mode and completely remove ubuntuone, no need to reinstall.

    Code:
    apt-get purge ubuntuone*

    Why is this marked as solved, the original bug has _not_ been solved, just telling those who encounter it to reinstall Ubuntu One or reformat isn't really a solution.

    As the original poster of this thread I agree. I viewed solved as too broad.

    I was not in the mood at the time to have my machine not working. In the long run it was not Ubuntuone after all. It was another problem I unknowingly created. A regular occurrence for Ubuntu Linux.
