Description of problem: some settings are grayed when opening authconfig-gtk as Super User. Specifically, Authentication method

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):6.2.10-10.fc23

How reproducible:Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use Terminal to login as Super User
2. enter command authconfig-gtk
3. Attempt to change grayed out settings

Actual results: Settings to change are greyed, even when running as su

Expected results: All settings available

Additional info:
Fedora 23 seems to work differently than 21 (was touring North Africa and Europe, so when I got home I skipped directly to F23). In F21, when I learned and enabled my fingerprint reader, any subsequent su logins asked me to swipe my finger. In F23, with fingerprint enabled and learned, terminal still asks for my password.

The grayed selection of authentication is intentional as you cannot independently set remote authentication with local user identity.

The fingerprint authentication option is on the Advanced Options tab.

Also verify that you have the fprintd package installed.

Well, that's what I love about learning Linux: There's always something to learn.

I installed F23 as a fresh (for lack of a better word) install. I think fprintd was installed by default.

I installed authconfig and authconfig-gtk after my install, and after I learned my fingerprint. So, the Fingerprint Authentication checkbox under the Advanced Options tab was already checked.

I realize bugzilla is not a help forum so I wont continue this much past this response.

Thank You and Happy New Year
