Ubuntu – Does Ubuntu One require administrator privileges

privilegesubuntu-one

Ubuntu One works when I login as administrator, but cannot synchronize if I use the normal account (see also here: Ubuntu One does not sync: firewall settings?). Is that normal?

The problem has been solved. I copy here the email sent by UbuntuOne-support.

Great! Everything is now working properly with Ubuntu One. Thank you so much for your help. I'll post your answer to the forum, in case it may help someone else with the same problem. Alberto

Hi, Looks like you have switched users. If you log in to Ubuntu One and sync your files, then log into Ubuntu One as a different user on your ocmputer and perform a sync without clearing out the old metadata you will get errors. To fix this please open a Terminal and run the following commands:

u1sdtool -q

rm -rf ~/.local/share/ubuntuone

u1sdtool -c

Let Ubuntu One run for a bit as it recreates your metadata.

Thanks, Duane
