Summary: A wrapper that helps console users run system programs

consolehelper is a tool that makes it easy for console users to run system
programs, doing authentication via PAM (which can be set up to trust all
console users or to ask for a password at the system administrator's
discretion). When possible, the authentication is done graphically;
otherwise, it is done within the text console from which consolehelper
was started.

consolehelper requires that a PAM configuration for every managed
program exist. So to make /sbin/foo or /usr/sbin/foo managed, you need
to create a link from /usr/bin/foo to /usr/lib/consolehelper/helper and create
the file /etc/pam.d/foo, normally using the pam_console(8) PAM module.
