Ubuntu One Indicator – An Ubuntu One Status Widget For Ubuntu
Anyone that uses Dropbox will be familar with the Dropbox panel widget that is installed by default. It gives you some very useful information like how much space you have left on your account, what’s left to sync and how long it wiill take to sync what’s left. Personally, I use Ubuntu One for numerous reason but I have often wished that U1 had some kind of Dropbox like widget.
Well people, look no further – the Ubuntu One Idicator is born. It’s been in development for a while now but I’ve been using it for around a month or two. I have to tell you, I don’t know how I managed without it. Below is a screen shot of the type of information you can expect to see within the indicator.
As you can see from the Image to the right, the information that the Ubuntu One indicator gives you is a lot like the Dropbox equivalent. If you want to install the Ubuntu One indicator then simple run the terminal commands below:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:rye/ubuntuone-extras sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install unbuntuone-indicator Ubuntu 12.04 sudo add-apt-repository ppa:rye/ubuntuone-extras sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install indicator-ubuntuone
