[Solved] Mythfrontend Setup Menu Unresponsive

Post by Andre » Wed Feb 12, 2014 6:14 pm

I have installed Mythbuntu 12.04 on a combined back end/front end computer and on a front end only laptop. After the initial set up of the front end, the "General", "Appearance" and "Audio" tabs of the setup menu become unresponsive. The other tabs i.e. "Wizard", "Themes", etc. work normally. Am I doing something wrong or is this normal behavior?

Try changing your theme to Terra for the time being.

The problem does not depend on the particular theme that I am using. The three themes that I have tried so far,including Terra, all behave the same way.

OK run mythfrontend from a terminal. Let's see the last few lines when the problem occurs.

Problem Solved.

Selecting the Qt paint engine for themes rather than OpenGL solved the problem. I don't understand why
but it works!
I would like to thank os/2 for pointing me in the right direction.
