Bug Description

Prior to the replacement of the ubuntuone-client-applet with ubuntuone-preferences users were given better indication as to the status of files being synchronized. We need to add back in some simple messaging within the ubuntuone-preferences control panel that indicates the overall file sync status. The message will say either "Synchronisation in progress" or "Synchronisation complete".

ORIGINAL DESCRIPTION:

Binary package hint: ubuntuone-client

Steps:

1. Assume U1 file-syncing is set up
2. Open the Ubuntuone directory
3. Click Connect
4. Wait a while for it to change from "Connect" to "Disconnect"

For me I see a bunch of files with green check marks, and some with grey recycle symbols. My question is, what is going on with my files? Are they being synced? Is the service even running.

This is much too confusing. We need some way to communicate the status of the service as well as to tie the action of connecting to something.

The following changes are required to resolve this bug:

1) Add a message to the control panel that indicates Ubuntu One's global sync status. The message will say either "Synchronisation in progress" or "Synchronisation complete". See attached designs for further details. For Lucid this messaging must be incorporated into the control panel in a similar fashion.

2) Remove the "Connect"/"Disconnect" button from Nautilus. This function is now handled in the control panel. For clarity, all global functions should be handled by the control panel, and Nautilus should only display information pertinent to the folder it is currently displaying. See attached screen shot showing the desired content of the Nautilus plugin (however note that the brown background should be changed to Canonical purple).

This is going to require freeze exceptions. And likely won't get done today, given the several other things I need to get finished today, unless someone else can do it.
