Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubuntuone-client

I was looking at powertop output and noticed ubuntuone-syncdaemon is running and was surprised because I haven't setup my ubuntuone account on this system. Is there any reason to run the syncdaemon for people who don't have accounts/

Hello Brian,

The startup script for ubuntuone-syncdaemon is checking for existence of Ubuntu One folder in your home directory. In case this folder exists then ubuntuone-syncaemon is started. Could you please confirm that you have this directory. In case you don't then it means that syncdaemon is autostarted by dbus by some other application.

I tested this on a virtual machine that was freshly installed and discovered that just opening the Ubuntu One control panel creates the Ubuntu One folder. I'd have thought the folder would only be created if I clicked 'Join now' or 'I already have an account'.

Launching ubuntuone-control-panel-gtk immediately starts ubuntuone-syncdaemon which in turn will create Ubuntu One folder.
Can be easily reproduced by creating a new user on current machine, log into it, confirm that no Ubuntu One folder is present and then launch ubuntuone-control-panel-gtk. Ubuntu One folder will be created, syncdaemon will be started.

The presence of Ubuntu One folder causes ubuntuone-launcher to run syncdaemon on every startup.
