    Unable to locate files downloaded onto my computer from U1

    I am using Ubuntu one on several computer. On this one it has not been working for some time so I uninstalled and then installed back. After installing Ubuntu one I see an icon on the top-right of my screen saying I am downloading from ubuntu one to my computer but I can't locate the files I am downloading. If I open the U1 folder I see nothing...where else it could be?

    (1) you can click on the download icon arrow in the browser and select to view all downloads

    (2) by default most downloads from the browser go the your Downloads folder (~/Downloads, or use the file manager). I don't know if this holds true for the files that are downloading but I suspect it might.

    Re: Unable to locate files downloaded onto my computer from U1

    I thought the OP was asking about syncing files using U1, not downloading with the browser.

    @ abel3: Can you enlighten us more about what you are wanting, please. I don't use U1, so if that is your query, I'll have to leave it to others.

    I tried using it for a while but had the problem of uploads and syncing stopping for some unknown reason. It was not much use to me in any case as my upload speeds are always too slow for sensible use as any sort of backup system, and I also have far too many files to allow for cloud storage.

    Opps - thought I read the browser in there. Indeed ubuntu 1 hasn't always worked the best for me either (i alwasy thought it was an operator problem ). When I work with small file sizes it's fine, but something larger starts getting strange. But that's just me.

    Could there have possibly been more than one user on the computer? My Ubuntu One folder is under $HOME, but I am the only user.
    Also there is a space in Unbutu One, so you have to use quotes:
    ls -alc $HOME/"Ubuntu One"

    Re: Unable to locate files downloaded onto my computer from U1

    Do you have a folder on your computer that has the same name as the one on the others ? Default is Ubuntu One, which I kept unchanged, and gets synced across several devices. Have you "added a folder from this computer" from the Ubuntu One app interface ?

    Ça ne fait rien, bapoumba. I guess it won't matter for long anyway.
