Ubuntu One Set-Up Added to Ubuntu 13.10 Installer

Ubuntu One login has been added to the system installer of Ubuntu 13.10.

Its addition allows Ubuntu One settings to be automatically applied during installation rather than, as is the case now, after it, and manually.

Right now the screen, which also allows for new users to sign up for the cloud-storage service, and appears as the final step in the Saucy installer, doesn’t really do much – at least, not for me. Logging in works but the screen simply freezes on what I would assume would be a selection screen for the files/folders I want to have synced on my fresh install.

Canonical merged their various Ubuntu account strands under the ‘Ubuntu One’ branding earlier this year, giving users access to their cloud files, photo backups and app & music purchases via a single login.
