0) Ubuntu One was working for once, downloaded files successfully, then on next reboot, complaint "IPCEror".
1) Commpletely remove ubuntuone-client
2) find . -name *ubuntuone* -exec rm -rf {} \;
3) Invoke Ubuntu One, let it install the client
4) Run Ubuntu One, and it'll still show you the "IPCError"

Version 3.0.1-0ubuntu1 of the following packages:

ubuntuone-control-panel-qt /
ubuntuone-control-panel-common /
ubuntuone-control-panel /
