Minimal UbuntuOne indicator by Gemneroth Minimal UbuntuOne indicator by Gemneroth
It was always frustrating for me that the UbuntuOne indicator icon was bright orange, it never fitted in with elementary at all. I put this icon together to somewhat rectify the issue. The menu still appears the same this just replaces the icon.

INSTALL:
Download the 'UbuntuOne Indicator.zip' file
Inside should be a folder called 'UbuntuOne Indicator'
Place this folder in the ~/.icons directory (This is a hidden folder in your home directory. To show, right click and then Show Hidden Files.)
To activate, use the elementary tweaks settings plug.

USE INDICATOR ICON ALONGSIDE ANOTHER ICON SET:
Inside the UbuntuOne Indicator file there is a folder named 'Apps' and inside that two folders named '48' and 'scalable'.
Both folders contain 3 identical .svg files with different names.
Find the folder that contains the icons of the set you wish to use. This will either be in '~/.icons' or '/usr/share/icons'
Copy the icons from the 'UbuntuOne Indicator/apps/48' into the '[insert icon set name]/apps/48'
After copying the icons across, enable the icon set and the new UbuntuOne indicator will appear

GET ELEMENTARY TWEAKS:
In a terminal,
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:versable/elementary-update
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install elementary-tweaks

If you are using any other OS, you can use appropriate tweak tools such as Ubuntu tweak etc

INSTALLING UBUNTUONE INDICATOR: (for Ubuntu 12.04 based OSs)
In a terminal,
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:rye/ubuntuone-extras
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install indicator-ubuntuone


EDIT: Not sure if that PPA is still active. Hopefully it is as it seems the only good way of interacting directly with the UbuntuOne client without opening the whole program.. I've sent a message to Roman Yepishev asking about future updates.

EDIT 2: UbuntuOne has now shut down! There are things like SyncDrive for googledrive and onedrive-d for Microsoft OneDrive as alternatives. I hope you enjoyed the indicator while it was still valid!

You mean Ubuntu is too large to fit on a disk? If you have a pendrive you can install it from there too :)
UbuntuOne has now shut down though so this indicator icon is sort of invalid now :c

I've been wanting to do something like this for SpiderOak, HP printer driver and Spotify icons for forever but I've been unable to find an established process. 
I think you've just confirmed there isn't one.
Thanks for the neat new look, I approve.

I've had a look around and it would appear than those apps have the indicator built in much the same as Skype.. A shame really as it does somewhat break the flow. Personally though, as I use UbuntuOne and Google drive for storage and Grooveshark or good old fashioned CDs for music I don't have the issues :D
