Description

This class: distro_packaging_util.py is horrible and buggy (no '-A' option with gksudo on some distros) so replace it with packagekit.

There are dbus bindings: example and decent usage docs

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

r4936 uses gpk-install-package-name is available and r4937 adds support for KDE's apper.

Finally, r4938 does it all properly using pure dbus calls (the others are used as fallback only)
