Error in installing Ubuntu One (cloud sync) on Linux Mint 13 Maya with Cinnamon

Trying to install UbuntuOne cloud sync on Linux Mint 13 Maya (Cinnamon) with the following command:

Sudo apt-get install ubuntuone-installer

The installer started well but it hanged in the middle with following message:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File “/usr/bin/ubuntuone-control-panel-qt”, line 29, in
from ubuntuone.controlpanel.gui.qt import main
File “/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/ubuntuone-control-panel/ubuntuone/controlpanel/gui/”, line 26, in
from ubuntuone.controlpanel.backend import UBUNTUONE_LINK
File “/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/ubuntuone-control-panel/ubuntuone/controlpanel/”, line 27, in
from ubuntuone.platform.credentials import CredentialsManagementTool
File “/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/ubuntuone-client/ubuntuone/platform/”, line 34, in
from ubuntu_sso.xdg_base_directory import xdg_home
ImportError: No module named xdg_base_directory

The message above is certainly not readable by humans. Though it appears that some definitions are missing. Can anybody help? I have tried headless install also by following command but it did not improve:

sudo apt-get install ubuntuone-client python-simplejson gir1.2-unity-5.0 -y && sudo wget -O /usr/local/bin/u1sdtool && sudo chmod +x /usr/local/bin/u1sdtool && cd /tmp && wget && python


And also pasted the out put from above to this file ~/.config/ubuntuone/syncdaemon.conf. but it did not help? Any suggestion or solution?
