Bug#753252: gnome-shell: enable network time in gnome date-time settings has no effect

Package: gnome-shell
Version: 3.4.2-7+deb7u1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

when trying to enable network time in the gnome settings under "data and time" not sure if this is the name
in english version nothing happens. Even when waiting for longer time (10mins).
Figured out that ntp is not installed on my system. I guess this option needs ntp and does not implement its own solution, right?
After installing ntp all worked fine.

Maybe gnome package needs to depend on ntp?
As far as I see, it does not: https://packages.debian.org/wheezy/gnome-shell

Let me know if you need further information.

best regards,
Carsten Brandt
