Ubuntu one pop-up

Postby catgate » Thu Nov 14, 2013 5:29 pm

Every time I boot up I get the pop up trying to entice me to "sign up" to Ubuntu One.
I have ignored it for a while but now I am becoming annoyed by it.
Does any kind person have the key to eradicate it, please?
Oh, sod it.

My words, nelz, that's a powerful looking spell.

I have another bigger problem just cropped up that Is much more annoying that Mr. Ubuntu's popup. I will come back to that matter when I have got Mr Epson's XP-315 sorted out (I hope).
Oh, sod it.

It's from the Google Book of Spells :)

Well now, nelz, I have settled my difference with Mr Epson, I hope, thanks to previous advice received from this coven. So I borrowed mrs-next-door's witches pointy hat and sat down to run your spell.
At that point I was unsure if I should do it line by line or just feed the entire spell in at one go.
Your advice would be more than gratefully received.
Oh, sod it.

I would do it line by line, ttat way you can make sure each step is successful before you take the next.

I hope for your sake that mrs-next-door does not subscribe to these forums.

Well, nelz, it looks as though she might have had a peep in. She's just that sort.

The first line did not seem unreasonable but the result of the second line has me wondering. It appears to have a tilde aversion.

Thanks, Rhakios.
This is what becomes of putting lads on "men's" jobs.
I must clean my specs (or change them).
Oh, sod it.

I have often found, in such situations, that copy and paste are worthwhile friends.

Yes so have I, but because of my recent HDD disaster I am now so extra cautious that that was why my comment to nelz was, "I was unsure if I should do it line by line or just feed the entire spell in at one go."

Granted I could have done a copy/paste line by line, but I don't think that occurred to me. Maybe I was under the influence of her with the pointed hat next door!!

Well thank you both for your help.
I have just been allowed to take a few minutes off from the dining room alterations to "play on my computer", and I can report what seems to be success.
After running nelz commands and rebooting the Ubuntuone panel did not appear. Witchcraft triumphs again.
I just hope I did not upset its equilibrium in other areas.
Thanks again.
Oh, sod it.

Sadly the spell seems to have small holes in it, because just occasionally it seems to let the pop-up through.
I have seen it about four times since it was "banished". I have a feeling that it is triggered when I go online, but I will have to observe some more to be sure about this.
Oh, sod it.

When it pops up, open a terminal and run

Code: Select all
pgrep -fl ubuntuone


to see what ubuntuone processes are running. Then you can find the package and uninstall it. It's possible that an update has reinstalled the packages you got rid of.
