Ubuntu One works fine if you sync a 1kb textfile. But for serious use, syncing takes longer than an 8 hour workday which is unacceptable, while Dropbox does the same in an hour.
Ubuntu One uploaded one megabyte in the last hour!
I've read about similar reports from 2 years ago and Ubuntu One's statement that this is a 10.04 problem, but I am running a fully updated Ubuntu 12.10 (Mint 14).
I have previously stopped using OwnCloud for the exact same reason, but I thought it was because of my server.
Does Ubuntu One use the same code as OwnCloud?
To put this more emotionally: Ubuntu One is unimaginable slow and utterly worthless.
I am not using a proxy or firewall that I know of, and Dropbox works lightningfast on the same system.
Any positive experiences or solutions to this speed problem? Certain tricks I don't know about?
I have changed this bug from invalid to confirmed. If you experience the same problems, please let them know it affects you too.
Someone said they contacted Ubuntu One support, who in turn advised to do this:
$ u1sdtool -s
connection: With User With Network
description: processing the commands pool
..but it doesn't seem to change anything. It only disconnects all my cloud folders, which is very annoying.
rm -rf ~/.local/share/ubuntuone
