Adding twisted to this, as the big reason this no longer works, even with my branch to fix the .desktop file name used, is that twisted and gobject-introspection don't mix. So, we need to track that issue as well, though unlikely to be fixed for Final Freeze.

"twisted and gobjet-introspection don't mix" ← this should probably be filed upstream as an actual bug. http://twistedmatrix.com/trac/newticket

If you need a gobject-introspection-based reactor, then http://twistedmatrix.com/trac/ticket/4558 is probably interesting. Feel free to contribute to that effort.

The twisted bug for this is http://twistedmatrix.com/trac/ticket/4558 I think. Though the proposed 'fix' there isn't. Also, making yet another account, on yet another insecure web site, just for one bug, is not something I really want to do. I do have the beginnings of a branch to fix it though, at lp:~dobey/twisted/gi-support . Unfortunately, the SelectReactor design doesn't seem to work so well on Linux, and none of the necessary fd-polling API from glib/gio/gobject have been bound by gobject-introspection yet. :(

Jean-Paul, sorry, I didn't see your reply when I was writing mine. The reactor code in that bug is nonsense. It is a copy of the gtk2reactor.py code, with only the imports changed to be from gi.repository instead. It doesn't actually solve the problem, or even work. :)

I've heard other people say it doesn't work. That is a pretty compelling reason for someone who is interested in this functionality to help out. I'm glad to hear you're working on this. I look forward to seeing the results!

Sorry for commenting on this closed bug. But I think it belongs here. I'm using oneric with all updates installed. But I do not get a progress bar for U1 in the lauchner. The U1-icon disappeared from the launcher after the upgrade from Natty ( Bug #865593 ). I got it back by starting the U1-Control-Panel and pinning it to the launcher. But I do not have a progress bar. How can I get it back?

Andre, sorry for the slow reply. I just now saw your question. The bug is not fixed completely. The code in ubuntuone-client that uses the Unity API is fixed to use the new .desktop file, is all. There are still some underlying issues in Twisted which prevent this from working. I don't know if we will be able to fx it in Oneiric, as it will require patching in what may be called a substantial feature, in the Twisted library. We probably also need to re-open the ubuntuone-client bugs, as there will be some necessary changes to make there, so that it will work.

Set this to Fix Released in all the ubuntuone-client tasks, as it now works as a result of the use of gireactor and other refactoring related to various gir vs. static bindings imports in the code.
