Bug Description

If the user's computer is not logged in to Ubuntu One via the U1 control panel, and the user clicks on "Download $X.XX" button in the Dash preview to purchase a song, the Dash closes and the user is taken to the U1 SSO signin/register web page. After they sign in on this web page the user is then taken to the U1 web music store where they enter their credit card details to purchase the song. U1 then charges the user’s credit card for the song and tells the user the purchase is complete, but the user is not given any mp3 file to download. Because the user’s computer is not signed in to Ubuntu One the song does not sync to their computer, and there is no easy and obvious way for the user to download the song they have just purchased.

The proposed workaround is like this: If the computer is not signed in to U1, we will remove the “Download $X.XX” button in the Dash preview and replace it with a message saying “Before you can purchase music you need to log in to Ubuntu One app”.

Since the proposed fix adds a new string and changes the UI, I've notified the documentation and translation teams, as the UI freeze exception process suggests.

Here are the posts in both mailing lists:

+1 from translations. Please update the .pot file asap, so that the new string can be translated.

+1 from docs. There are currently no screenshots of this in the documentation, so it won't be impacted.

Yes. Seems like something we should have. +1 from the release team. Please have this uploaded to the queue before Final Freeze.
