usermode (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Description: Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
Release: 14.04

usermode version 1.109-1

The manual page for consolehelper(8) says:

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

However, the pam_console PAM module is no longer available in Ubuntu.
The documentation should either be updated to document how one can use
consolehelper, or consolehelper should be removed.
