    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.
