     debian: remove dependency on obsolete and removed gksu,kdesu etc.

     Changes - In Summary

     * uses sudo with custom function to get password and execute mythtv-
       stop/start, instead of now obsolete and removed gksu,kdesu etc.

     * fixes unable to connect to database on first run of mythtv-setup or
       mythfrontend (link /etc/mythtv/config.xml to ~/.mythtv/config.xml).

     * removed broken find session code and auto logout code.

     * all dialogs to use zenity (cross platform), the overhead on KDE is
       and mythtv installs zenity on Kubuntu anyway.

     * suppressed most stderr output - new users could be concerned about
       output when run in a terminal session

     * works when run from menu or in terminal session.

     * updated to use systemctl for status/stop/start mythtv-backend,
       will also issued before start mythtv-backend, where mythtv-backend
 has been
       "failed" by systemd e.g. restarting too many times.
