I assume you mean a launcher on your desktop and not the Ubuntu One applet that was in the top gnome-panel. The applet is no longer a feature of Ubuntu One. it was replaced by Ubuntu One Preferences. In Lucid the preferences are accessed by going to me Menu --> Ubuntu One or System --> Preferences --> Ubuntu One.

You can make a new Desktop Launcher by doing the following.

1. right-click on the Desktop and select 'Create Launcher'
2. Select 'Type' Application
3. 'Name' Ubuntu One
4. 'Command' /usr/bin/ubuntuone-preferences
5. Save it and your done

Note: You can do the same in gnome-panel if you wish. Just right-click and select 'Add to Panel'. Then select 'Custom Application Launcher' and click 'Add'. From their it will be similar to the above steps.

thank you,

Thank you, duanedesign.
I'm new in ubuntu one...

I mean an icon that is like a folder with two arrows in circles. I think that is there where I have access to my synchornized files, is it?

Ohhh, ok. I think i understand what you want now :)

You want to create a link to your Ubuntu One folder. The Ubuntu One folder is in your $HOME directory. That is the folder with your username. So it is at /home/julio/Ubuntu One (if julio is your username). Navigate to your $HOME directory and find the Ubuntu One folder. Right-click on the folder and select 'Make Link'. A folder will appear in your $HOME directory called 'Link to Ubuntu One'. Click and drag that folder to your Desktop.

If you have any further questions please ask.

thank you,
