Bug Description

Sharing doesn't appear to work on Lucid with all the latest updates as of 2010-04-02 with ubuntuone-client 1.1.90-0ubuntu1. Can select contacts to share with but they never show up in

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Click Places -> Home Folder
  2. Double-click Ubuntu One folder
  3. Right-click Test Share folder and select Share on Ubuntu One
  4. Click on contact to share with
  5. Click Share button
  6. Open Applications -> Internet -> Firefox Web Browser
  7. Enter in Firefox URL field
  8. In Firefox, click on arrow next to My Files
  9. Click on Test Share
10. Click on the Sharing link

Result: "This Folder is not shared." displays in web UI for folder's "Sharing" info

Expected result: Folder shared with contact selected in step 4

In order for this to work as you're expecting it to, there would have to be some kind of association between your contact and an Ubuntu One user.

BTW, When I try this, the contact picker pops up and then disappears. Maybe because I have 180+ contacts?
