Roman Yepishev‘s Ubuntu One indicator-applet – a neat way to view and monitor your Ubuntu One accounts’ sync status on your desktop panel – is now installable via a dedicated PPA.

Install Ubuntu One Indicator in Ubuntu 10.04 – 11.04

To install it open a Terminal (Applications > Accessories > Terminal) and enter the following lines: –

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:rye/ubuntuone-extras

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install ubuntuone-indicator

Alternatively add the ‘ppa:rye/ubuntuone-extras’ to ‘Other Software’ in ‘Software Sources’ accessible via the ‘edit’ menu in the Ubuntu Software Centre. Run an update and search for ‘ubuntuone-indicator’.
