Now that I have Knoppmyth up and running for more than .78 days I have had a chance to mess around with some of its features. I must say I definatly underestimated it. Anyway the thing I have today is how to install a new theme in MythTv. The one I chose is ProjectGreyhem because it is the closest to my modded xbox skin that I have now.
I am taking these instructions directly from the ProjectGrehem site because this is exactly hew it worked for me. It is really nice to have things work as they should!!
It is very easy to install Project Grayhem or Project Grayhem Wide
- Download the tarball
- Copy it to /usr/share/mythtv/themes
N.B.: Check where themes are stored on your installation as themes can be stored at /usr/local/share/mythtv/themes depending on your distro.
- Unpack the tarball with: tar -xvjpf Project-Grayhem-foo.bz2
- Your new MythTV Theme should now be ready to use.
- Either theme should work with MythTV 0.20
Thanks a lot to whoever maintains this skin (I couldn’t find any credits)
Just in case anyone is wondering “download the tarball” means to use the wget command (make sure you are saving it in a directory you can write to).
and the “tar -xvjpf Project-Grayhem-foo.bz2″ actually means to type in whichever version you downloaded.Â To make it really easy just type “tar -xvjpf Project<tab>” in the correct folder as root.
