  I am using centos 5 with gnome.  Somehow I deleted consolehelper (not in the trash) from /usr/bin, and now I can not open any system-config programs.  For example - system-administration-system security and firewall, will not open.

  So I searched the machine, and found a package containing "consolehelper.8" .. So I extracted it, and dropped it into /usr/bin , and renamed it to consolehelper.  But all that did was resolve the broken symbolic link, and unfortunately still does not open system security and firewall.  

Does anyone know how I can restore console helper to avoid a full centos reinstall ???
