View Full Version : Frontend will not start - nothing happens

January 30th, 2009, 04:03 PM

I have a functionnal backend (ibm thinkcentre, mythbuntu 8.1) and i took my second thinkcentre to create a frontend.

I successfully configured and had a working frontend until an update i did last night. Now the frontend won't even appear.

(double-clic icon, nothing appears)

I've tried reinstalling mythbuntu-frontend, but still no screen. I can open mythbuntu control center and test the connection (successful) to the backend (

How do i go about analyzing what's happening ?

try starting mythfrontend from the command line and see if it tells you anything. i think you can also check /var/log/mythtv/mythfrontend.log for any errors. you can also pass mythfrontend a -v arg with kerywords such as 'all' or 'video'. check mythfrontend -h for the particulars.
