Suppose you want to start printconf-gui from a text terminal using:
[gerald@soliton bin]$ printconf-gui &
[gerald@soliton bin]$ You are attempting to run "printconf-gui" which requires
privileges, but more information is needed in order to do so.
Password for root:
If you start typing, your password will appear in plain on the screen and
it will be stored in the bash history. Consolehelper should dedect such
a situation and bring up a graphical pasword promt instead
(if possible or else fail).
Seems to work in 7.3?
