CLI for UbuntuOne client

Asked by MikeR on 2009-09-16

Is there a command-line-interface for the Ubuntu One client?

Is there a way of pausing the client from the command line if I want my full potential bandwidth allocated to something else while being able to resume uploading files where I left off?

Hi Mike, There is a command-line utility you can install: ubuntuone-client-tools This will provide the ability to sync files from the command line, but it won't give you the ability to "pause" Ubuntu One while it's syncing.

Thanks Joshua Hoover, that solved my question.

A pause button would be helpful. What is the current best practice for interrupting a sync when I need to shut down my box, change wifi networks, etc?

Just doing it should work. There's a bug right now where the syncdaemon gets confused by some suspend/resume cycles and some network configuration changes; a workaround to that would be to disconnect the syncdaemon before effecting the change.
