Use package-kit to install dependencies
Last modified: 2012-09-25 16:27:13 EDT
Currently when selecting different kinds of "User Account Configuration" in authconfig, a message is displayed if a dependency is not installed.
This patch will add an 'Install' button. Uses package kit to perform the installation.

Patch which uses package-kit to install dependencies
The patch uses the package-kit dbus interface to do the install. UI and dialogs are displayed by package-kit as child windows of the authconfig gtk window.
I'm not very familiar with Mercurial. Let me know if the patch isn't in an appropriate form.
I'm getting Failure using package kit: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.Spawn.ChildExited: Process /usr/bin/gpk-dbus-service exited with status 1 if I try to test the patch and pushing the Install button.
(also fixed a typo in the patch)
Could the problem be that the authconfig runs as root?
