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?

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).

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.

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).

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.

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.

When it pops up, open a terminal and run

Code:
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.
