clock-panel no longer installs NTP support

Bug #55988 reported by Micah Cowan
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
gnome-system-tools (Ubuntu)
Ubuntu Desktop Bugs

Bug Description

When NTP support is not installed, checking "Synchronize clock..." gives the message about needing to install NTP support, but does not offer to do so, nor give instructions as to the appropriate packages to install.

This in edgy (2.15.91-0ubuntu2)

I can confirm this. Clear instructions should be given, or install NTP support by default.
