ubuntuone client doesn't start - dbus error?

Asked by Tamás Unyatinszki on 2012-10-26

Hi

When trying to start up the ubuntuone client app in 12.04.1 it dies with the following error message in the syncdaemon-exceptions.log file:

i was able to start it up for the first time (it did synchronize my files from the cloud) but not since then. Based on ps the syncdaemon seems to be running even after producing the above log output - not sure if it is working properly thougth.

Thank you in advance.

Try to look in

~$ .cache/ubuntuone/logs/

and see at syncdaemon.log for further details.

Do you have any firewall installed that could blocked the ubuntuone ?

Thanks

Can you give the output of:

lsb_release -a; uname -a; dpkg -l | grep ubuntuone

Thanks

hi actionparsnip the output of lsb_release -a; uname -a; dpkg -l | grep ubuntuone is:

NikTh: file sync itself seems to be working, i only can't start up the client app to manage which folder to synchronize so i doubt if this is a firefall issue.

Then maybe a re-installation solve the problem.

~$ sudo apt-get install --reinstall ubuntuone-client

Thanks

Just tried re-installing - still the same issue persist. The client app doesn't start

Also just tried that file sync itself works fine: after adding a file through the web interface it appeared locally also deleting worked fine. But the usual info popup saying that ubuntuone is doing something didn't appear for any of the actions. So it looks like the GUI integration bit is not working for me.

Hmmm...

maybe a problem with seahorse ?

Open it from terminal

~$ seahorse

and see if any password for ubuntuone exists.

Thanks

Thank you for your help both, this could have been related to password as you suggested above. What i did now is i removed the machine from ubuntu one on the website and deleted all my config folders locally. After this with a clean setup it seems to be working - hope it won't go bad again...

Thanks NikTh, that solved my question.
