  • Open a terminal CTRL+ALT+T and type:

    killall ubuntuone-login ubuntuone-preferences ubuntuone-syncdaemon
    
    sudo rm -rf ~/.local/share/ubuntuone
    
    rm -rf ~/.cache/ubuntuone
    
    rm -rf ~/.config/ubuntuone
    
    mv ~/Ubuntu\ One/ ~/UbuntuOne_old/``
    

    (source: Ubuntu One) - Support pages no longer exist.

    And then just to make sure.

    sudo apt-get remove --purge ubuntuone-*

    (Note for Ubuntu 14.*: Please refer to iheggie's answer to avoid the removal of the Ubuntu Desktop.)

    Edit: The reason for this method over more simple methods is to ensure that the configurations, cache and any other preferences do not remain on your system; if we've learnt anything from Windows it's that prefetch is more than enough to slow a system down, it's good practise to clear your system now then to forget what needs to be cleaned later.
