How to setup Wuala secure cloud storage in Ubuntu 11.10 and Linux Mint 12

Ubuntu Software Manager Wuala Install

Wuala is a cloud storage service offered by LaCie, a computer storage and display outfit. Wuala is supported on all major operating system platforms, and there is even an app for iPhone and iPad. Like all cloud storage services, Wuala makes it easy for you to backup, sync, share and retrieve your data from any location.

Yesterday’s article about Wuala was mostly about its terms of service. (See is the Wuala cloud storage service truly private .) This article gives the steps required to create an account and start using the service in Ubuntu 11.10 and Linux Mint 12. The instructions are also valid for any distribution derived from Ubuntu or Mint. It is a very simple process.

First, download and install the client. There is a separate client for 32- and 64-bit platforms. After that, create and account, then set up the folders you would like to sync with your account on Wuala’s servers.
