Ubuntu One gets in the way - how to turn it off?

Asked by grikdog on 2010-10-22

I detest the way Ubuntu One has invaded my system with "helpful" functions. I prefer to either turn it off or remove it completely from my system. How do I do that?

Thanks, but I figured most of it out. IMHO, Ubuntu One is a bug, not a
feature, and should never have been installed without permission.

Personally I think there should be an option to select software at install time. I feel the same way about firefox
