ADD ability to launch YaST modules via SystemSettings

Feature state

Rejected Information
Rejected Information


It would be better and simplier for novice to have only one configuration panel in the system, both for KDE and general System Administration via YaST. Similiar work was done for gnome: now opensuse has an integrated all-in-one control panel there.
I propose to add an Administration tab in systemsettings, which would provide launchers for YaST`s system administration tools.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Simply open menu: you`ll find there two different launchers for YaST and SystemSettings.
Actual Results:
Now SystemSettings and YaST aren`t integrated.

Expected Results:
User want to do some system administration tasks, he/she opens SystemSettings and opens required configuration tool.

Something similiar was in SuSE 10.0 with KDE3.4.

I'm not sure it's the right way to follow.
See this previous blog post from Duncan :

There is also already ongoing effort on a new version of the control center based on System settings concept (but not to integrate with it).

Ok, not all YaST modules - only needed by an abstract desktop user - Network Configuration, Date and Time, Sound, Printers etc. Server and advanced system administration must stay in YaST: as it has been done in GNOME Control Center.

At least some of the doubled modules can go away. From a KDE's POV I'm thinking of user management, date and time, input device and also printer management.
