Install MythTV Frontend
The majority of the rest of the work should be handled by Ubuntu packaging.
- Install the mythtv software.
From Synaptic Package Manager, Search for mythtv. Choose mythtv-frontend. Press the apply button and mythtv will be installed.
Copy /etc/mythtv/mysql.txt from your backend machine to /etc/mythtv.
Next, add yourself and any other users that need MythTV acces to the mythtv group.
- To add users to the mythtv group, use this command:
# sudo usermod -a -G mythtv USERNAME
- Where USERNAME is the name of the user you are adding to the mythtv group.
- Test the Frontend. Launch the frontend from a terminal window.
Watch for any error messages in the terminal. As long as this is free from errors, you can launch from the icon in the Sound & Video group from now on.
