Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.

In Ubuntu 13.10, there's no Nautilus integration for Ubuntu One because the package containing the Nautilus extension was removed.

Some of that functionality is integrated with the Sync Menu, but not all: currently, there is no way of knowing if a file is currently in sync with Ubuntu One. Also, some users might prefer to right click a file in Nautilus to share it / get a share link, instead of opening the main Ubuntu One interface. Read on to find out how to get this back in Ubuntu 13.10.

UbuntuOne Nautilus integration Ubuntu 13.10

Note: If you've upgraded to Ubuntu 13.10 instead of doing a clean install, the Ubuntu One Nautilus extension should be installed on your system. This change affects new Ubuntu installations only.

If you want to get the Ubuntu One Nautilus integration back in Ubuntu 13.10, you must install two deb packages from Ubuntu 13.04:

mkdir /tmp/ubuntuone
wget https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/ubuntuone-client-gnome/4.2.0-0ubuntu1/+build/4405130/+files/ubuntuone-client-gnome_4.2.0-0ubuntu1_i386.deb -O /tmp/ubuntuone/ubuntuone-client-gnome_4.2.0-0ubuntu1_i386.deb
wget https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/ubuntuone-client/4.2.0-0ubuntu1/+build/4405193/+files/libsyncdaemon-1.0-1_4.2.0-0ubuntu1_i386.deb -O /tmp/ubuntuone/libsyncdaemon-1.0-1_4.2.0-0ubuntu1_i386.deb
sudo dpkg -i /tmp/ubuntuone/*.deb

mkdir /tmp/ubuntuone
wget https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/ubuntuone-client-gnome/4.2.0-0ubuntu1/+build/4405128/+files/ubuntuone-client-gnome_4.2.0-0ubuntu1_amd64.deb -O /tmp/ubuntuone/ubuntuone-client-gnome_4.2.0-0ubuntu1_amd64.deb
wget https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/ubuntuone-client/4.2.0-0ubuntu1/+build/4405191/+files/libsyncdaemon-1.0-1_4.2.0-0ubuntu1_amd64.deb -O /tmp/ubuntuone/libsyncdaemon-1.0-1_4.2.0-0ubuntu1_amd64.deb
sudo dpkg -i /tmp/ubuntuone/*.deb

Then, restart Nautilus:
nautilus -q

And you should be able to see the sync status in Nautilus for all the files in your Ubuntu One folder. You can also share a file via the Nautilus context menu, etc.
