Hey Ted thanks for responding. So I've been trying some things by looking
at the Ubuntu One source. I did succeed in getting a item in the sync menu.
However I'm also trying to implement the on/off button. When its toggled it
returns a *<GParamBoolean 'paused'>* but how do I access the state? I can't
seem to get the value from it. So how would I do that.

Also when I toggle the button for the first time my app doesn't seem to get
a signal. Only the times after that. Do I need to listen to it in another
way? I'm using this at the moment:

*self.app.connect("notify::paused", self.sync_stage_change)*
