ERROR while downloading theme package from master backend

Post by wesnewell » Mon Apr 29, 2019 2:07 pm

Trying to figure out why i get this after deleting a theme either manually in ~/.mythtv/themes or by doing so in theme chooser. Been like this for several versions now. Deleting the theme dir doesn't delete anything else anywhere. Can anyone tell me what's going on. TIA

Assuming the backend is running as user mythtv, I'd do:
ls -la ~mythtv/.mythtv/tmp/remotethemes. Expect everything
to be readable/writable (searchable for directories) by mythtv.

I'm running master too and just got a new version of Steppes yesterday.
Expect a themes.zip file under the above.

[Themes get downloaded to the backend 1st.]

Yes, everything is there,
wes@mythfe0:~$ ls -la /home/mythtv/.mythtv/tmp/remotethemes
total 320
drwxr-xr-x 4 mythtv mythtv 4096 Jan 26 13:22 .
drwxr-xr-x 5 mythtv mythtv 4096 Jun 28 2018 ..

wes@mythfe0:~$
That's what doesn't make sense to me. It's also there in my home dir where I run the frontend from.
wes@mythfe0:~$ ls -la /home/wes/.mythtv/tmp/remotethemes

and all the theme infos ae there too, in both.

yet I still get the error message if I delete the theme from the themes dir either manually, or within the frontend. To duplicate delete one of your themes either manually from the /.mythtv/themes dir or from within the frontend setup theme chooser, and then refresh and then try to download it again.Suggest you have it backed up first.

Almost 2 weeks and no replies. Has anyone even tried to verify this. It does it on all 5 of my machines.

There appears to be 2 levels of caching involved and for some reason
a stale cache is causing the error.

On the backend: sudo rm -rf ~mythtv/.mythtv/cache/*

That didn't fix it. Still get the error. Not a big deal for me as i know how to get them back.
