Include a control to display or not the livepatch indicator

Bug #1835910 reported by Sebastien Bacher on 2019-07-09
This bug affects 1 person
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
software-properties (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

* Impact
The livepatch UI design includes a control in software-properties which let you enable the indicator or not, that UI element is currently missing from bionic

* Test case
- start software-properties
- go the livepatch tab and enable livepatch by adding an account
-> the UI should include a toggle that let you activate/disactive the indicator
- click on the control button
-> the indicator status should reflect the control one

* Regression potential
The change is adding a new widget, it shouldn't impact on existing code but check that the page layout is still correct. The change also include translatable strings, they are being handled the same way as the other livepatch strings added in the previous upload (shared translations between serie included in langpack updates)

summary: - Include control to display or not the indicator
+ Include a control to display or not the livepatch indicator
