    Default Ubuntu One - need help to install and setup

    I have an active Ubuntu One account and I need to install it in openSUSE.

    I have searched the web and couldn't find any help on how to install Ubuntu One on openSUSE.
    I have invested in Ubuntu One and need to get it working on my oS.

    Any ideas on how to go about installing Ubuntu One on openSUSE?
    If anyone here has installed and uses Ubuntu One then some guidance is requested on to how to set it up.

    Regards...

    I have done a 1click install of Ubuntu One from: http://software.opensuse.org/package/ubuntuone-client - for Tumbleweed. (I am using Tumbleweed repos).

    However, after installation, I don't see how to run it; I mean, there is no application-launcher to it in the application Menu... and not sure what commands to run, though I will be trying a few things....

    When you run Tumbleweed, there is a Tumbleweed forum here. That is where those who are also running Tumbleweed will look if they can help other Tumbleweed users.

    I have been trying to get Ubuntu One work but here's what I end up with:

    Code:
    :~> u1sdtool --start
    Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "/usr/bin/u1sdtool", line 34, in <module>
        from twisted.internet import gireactor
      File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/twisted/internet/gireactor.py", line 84, in <module>
        from gi import pygtkcompat
      File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/gi/pygtkcompat.py", line 10, in <module>
    ImportError: No module named pygtkcompat
    
    
    :~> u1sdtool --connect
    Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "/usr/bin/u1sdtool", line 34, in <module>
        from twisted.internet import gireactor
      File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/twisted/internet/gireactor.py", line 84, in <module>
        from gi import pygtkcompat
      File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/gi/pygtkcompat.py", line 10, in <module>
    ImportError: No module named pygtkcompat
    I am stuck here.

    Any ideas on how get U1 work on openSUSE?

    Regards...

    @hcvv: Do you really think this is a 'Tumbleweed' issue?
    If yes, then please move this to 'Tumbleweed sub-forum'.

    In fact I do not have to think about this.

    I was searching through your post to see what version of openSUSE you had the problem on. The only vague pointer I could find was one to Tumbleweed. So in fact my carefull formufated suggestion was that you did not look thouroughly through the (sub)forums available to post it in the best place to get the best answer (your goal maybe, not mine). So i suggested that But it is you that should decide, not I.

    In any case, I strongly suggest you allways tell prominently which version of openSUSE you use and not let people guess this.

    Maybe you need to install "python-gobject".

    There may be a current problem with a dependency.

    Searching the open build service although the following is for 12.3, I assume in principle it could be adapted for numerous distros and versions if it built successfully
    https://build.opensuse.org/project/m...=0&succeeded=0

    Looks like someone tried to build it again very recently but there is a problem with python-oauthlib.
    Until that's fixed, maybe only the original debian source will work.

    If the Tumbleweed version is coming from somewhere else, that'd be important and interesting.

    BTW -
    If there is an unsurmountable problem installing,

    Workarounds exist, eg WINE (Windows installer) or Virtualization so you can run Ubuntu as a Guest VM simultaneously on your openSUSE.

    Could possibly mean extending your current level of expertise, depending on your ability you can deploy a Guest using various virtualization technologies. Advanced users might be able to deploy an LXC Guest which would mean the overhead would be tiny. Less advanced users might want to opt for something relatively easy to deploy which includes running a Desktop, popular free choices include VMware Player, Virtualbox,
    KVM.

    With all virtualization choices, there are integration solutions which share folders between the Guest and Host, so you'd even have automatic access to something like Ubuntu One automatically in the HostOS, e openSUSE (after it's set up).

    HTH,
