UbuntuOne Indicator Applet

The Ubuntu One Indicator Applet which we told you about a few days ago now has a PPA so it's easier to install and stay up to date with new releases.

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ubuntuone-indicator

Once installed, you'll have to run it manually. Press ALT + F2 and enter:
