Bug Description

WORK AROUND: Until we get a fix in, please run the following command at a terminal session: sudo apt-get install python-httplib2

On a stock install of Jaunty on up, installing the latest PPA client (1.1.2+r407-0ubuntu2~ppa1~jaunty) produces the following error when attempting to start ubuntuone-preferences:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/ubuntuone-preferences", line 30, in <module>
    import httplib2
ImportError: No module named httplib2

same issue here,-
It would be nice if the terminal error could have said, fix this by

sudo apt-get install python-httplib2

assuming this will in fact cure all

The errors continue

I installed python-httplib2

Due to ubuntu one not being under Applications --> Internet
I went back to teminal btw it is under System --> Preferences

I tried it with Sudo and did not create a keyring password when prompted.

I tried it and created a keyring password. Both sudo times it asked me to add my computer.

When I tried to lauch from its menu location all I get is the "ubuntu one error" dialog box, blank no content.

I am using a Dell 2400 with 1GB ram. ubuntu 9.04 with current updates.
