Public bug reported:

By default on fresh edgy uptodate install with g-s-t 2.15.4-0ubuntu3 when you go to "Adjust Date & time" on time applet. Clicking on "Synchronize Now" do nothing.
If you select "Keep clock synchronized with internet servers", ubuntu install required packages, after that you can deselect "Keep clock synchronized with internet servers" and cliking now on "Synchronize Now" button works !

So :
1/ "Synchronize Now" have to be grayed if packages required are not installed
2/ Clicking on "Synchronize Now" must install packages required if they are not already installed
3/ Packages required have to be installed by default

I think that 2/ is the better way to solve that. 3/ is the easy way.

Step to reproduce :
install edgy
right click on time applet
select "Adjust Date&Time"
change your Time
click on "Synchronize Now" -> nothing append
