Hi, Just thought I'd mention that after two and a half years, this
bug/snafu is still present.

Using 9.10 which out of the box installs UbuntuOne and trumpets its
ability to synchronise notes with Tomboy. As described above, it fails
with no error in the description box. Running with --debug, reveals it
is missing wdfs. Which isn't in any of the ubuntu repositories.

So, if this feature doesn't work, why are the Ubuntu marketing team
selling it?

I try to synchronize Tomboy via Webdav. I go into the tomboy settings under "Synchronization" and choose as service "WebDAV (wdfs FUSE)". After that i enter my settings

When i choose "save", i get the following error message

Error connecting :(
Sorry, but something went wrong. Please check your information and try again. The ~/.tomboy.log might be useful too.

And inside ~/.tomboy.log each time i hit save the line

is added.
