Bug Description

For those not using NetworkManager and are on Karmic, the fix for this bug is in proposed updates. To install proposed updates, please read this FAQ:

For those on Jaunty, please update to the latest version of the client and this should work.



1. Open Internet->Applications->Ubuntu One
2. Open Places->Ubuntu One
3. Right-click on folder and select "Share on Ubuntu One..."
4. Fill in fields:
   Share with (e-mail): valid-email-address
   Share name: name-of-share
5. Click the "Share" button

Result: ~/.cache/ubuntuone/log/syncdaemon.log has an entry of: exceptions.TypeError: callback() takes exactly 2 arguments (1 given)

Expected result: No visible errors or related errors logged in ~/.cache/ubuntuone/log/syncdaemon.log



This is an error in syncdaemon, not nautilus-ubuntuone.

If the patch fixing #491777 is applied then the user is greeted with the following message:

Error creating share.
There was an error sharing the folder '$folder':
callback() takes exactly 2 arguments (1 given)

syncdaemon.log contains the following.
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/", line 497, in __bootstrap
