I just signed in to Ovi Files service and it works great on Windows Desktop. But it lacks a connector for Linux. Is there any alternative way to achieve the same. The goal is to sync your files on the desktop with a webstorage system like Google Docs or Ovi files, Dropbox and so on.

Google docs:
Dropbox: (Using experimental is advised on Linux)
Uhm that's it I guess. (You can also use Ubuntu one).

Thanks, gdocsuploader is an interesting application. However it does not quite do what I need. I am looking more for a sync app to be able to keep 3 computers (1 desktop and 2 laps) in sync via web. Ovi files is really nice but lacks an Ubuntu connector. – MikeG May 26 '10 at 5:20
Well.. what about Dropbox? oO – Shiki May 26 '10 at 6:14
Yes, Dropbox is a good option. Its only drawback is the need to have a dedicated offline folder, whereas Ovi Files keeps reachability to all your docs and has the handy and cool "any time" feature. Thanks again. – MikeG May 26 '10 at 12:19
Hmm you could keep a cron job with rsync to keep them in sync. Or simply work into the Dropbox folder (Dropbox users tend to do that, like I put my VS files there. On linux you can simply hardlink them I guess.) – Shiki May 26 '10 at 14:16
