Simplify "ThinLincification" of a Linux system - perhaps via tl-setup

You need to
before you can comment on or make changes to this bug.
Each one installs a new ThinLinc system, there's a certain amount of things
needs to be done to tune the system for ThinLinc. This includes:
* Set a default, plain background color for all users
* Disable the screensavers for all users
* Fix the KDE aRts error message stuff
All this is described in the UG FAQ. We could create some kind of tool that
automates these steps. It would be possible to add this functionality to the
tl-setup tool. It already allows you to select different "tasks" to perform,
example setup the CUPS queues and configure Webmin. Doing this "KDE" tuning
could be one or more new tasks.
One drawback with implementing this is that this quite little to do with
ThinLinc. It will fail on systems with non-standard KDE installations, such as
Debian and Solaris.
The first two things can be fixed with kiosktool etc. That leaves us with only
the arts message.
Bug 5584 is another example of when it could be useful to offer the admin to
tweak the system. This could be in a form of a tl-setup page:
Adapt System for Remote Desktop Sessions
[x] Disable "PackageKit" authentication dialogs
[x] Disable "colord" authentication dialogs
