Error Running MythTV setup

Post by lant » Sun Aug 18, 2019 11:43 pm

I am attempting to setup MythTV on a clean installation of Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS running on an Odroid UX4 single board computer. Storage is a 128gb emmc module. Installation of MythTV using the command "sudo apt-get install mythtv went smoothly. Following instructions on the MythTV website Installing_MythTV_on_Ubuntu, I ran "sudo adduser odroid video" and received the message that my user (odroid) was already added to the video group. Then I tried to run the setup backend setup command "/usr/bin/mythtv-setup". A terminal window popped up and some error messages appeared about "login failed..", then that screen disappeared and a graphical pop-up appeared, asking if I wanted to run MythTV backend. Whether I say yes or no, another graphical pop-up appears asking if I want to run MythFillDatabase. If I click the yes option I get another momentary terminal window mentioning "no channel set..." and disappears. No other messages appear. I haven't been able to get to the GUI MythTV backend setup to load yet.

Any suggestions for this MythTV newbie, as to what to do to get the MythTV backend setup configured?
Here is the last few lines of the MythTV error.log:

If you are referring to this post viewtopic.php?f=36&t=3114#p15073

The command is sudo adduser $USER mythtv
You need to either logout or reboot after this.
